Bring Your ABATE Chapter to the State Capitol Offer

Hello Freedom Fighters,

You all know by now that due to renovations at the State Capitol we will not be able to have our traditional Bikerday. So we are asking Chapters to schedule their own “mini Bikerday”.

Lake Chapter has 17 members signed up to lobby at the State Capitol on February 11th. Chapter representatives will be making appointments for the members attending and they will hand deliver ABATE of MN talking points to their elected officials. These talking points were recently sent out to this email list and Mack has printed copies.

ABATE of MN's 2017 Legislative Talking Points

The Minnesota State Legislature will convene on January 3rd, 2017 and is expected to adjourn in mid-May. Below are ABATE of Minnesota’s positions on some of the motorcycling related issues. ABATE of Minnesota’s 12th annual Bikerday at the Minnesota State Capitol will be held on Wednesday, January 25, 2017.

Please join and support ABATE of Minnesota.

Celebrate Freedom – Go for a Ride

I wish all of Minnesota’s freedom fighters a very happy Independence Day! As more and more Americans continue to accept a country based on government’s protection of people from themselves, I believe that bikers lead the way in understanding what true liberty is. For me and all the motorcyclists I know, to not ride is unthinkable. And to ride under oppressive “one size fits all” mandates is a life less lived.

Help ABATE at the Minnesota HOG Rally
