What is ABATE?

ABATE is non-partisan and welcomes all riders. We give those with a strong interest in motorcycling an opportunity to unite and become part of a dynamic organization. No other group of people with a common interest bonds and cares like the community of riders. Dixie ABATE feels that all of us, from lifestyle rider to off-road-fan, are brothers and sisters with a common interest — riding free!

Dixie ABATE of Alabama is a state motorcylists’ rights organization (SMRO) dedicated to preserving individual freedom while promoting safety. We fully support rider training, including safety and educational programs, as well as motorcycle awareness education for all automobile drivers.

We are an active and dynamic organization, run by real people who are always ready to hear what you have to say. You can hit the Feedback button on this website and send us a message. We all work when we have to and ride when we can, and we can always use your help and participation. Let us know if you have any questions. Join us as we work toward uniting Alabama’s riders so that we can help educate everyone who drives Alabama’s roads and also keep an eye on Alabama’s laws as they pertain to motorcycles and motorcycling. We are gaining membership every week. Join our facebook group at so you can keep up on what we’re up to.
