ABATE of Wisconsin is a motorcyclist rights and safety organization that works to make motorcycle rider voices be heard. Many other states, including Illinois and Iowa, also have an ABATE organization that has the same goals in mind. On February 17, 2022, ABATE of Wisconsin will hold their annual Lobby Day (also known as Biker Day) at the Wisconsin State Capitol. Riders from all around the state of Wisconsin and beyond gather to discuss current issues, laws and concerns of motorcyclists with state legislators.
Gathering for Lobby Day has helped make issues concerning bikers stay at the top of mind of state lawmakers. Since ABATE of Wisconsin’s founding in the 1970s, members have worked on issues like mandatory helmet laws, motorcycle equipment restrictions, angle parking restrictions and much more. The group also has worked to promote rider safety and motorcycle awareness. On Lobby Day, buses from each region of Wisconsin will convene at the capitol in Madison and riders will meet with lawmakers to discuss the current issues concerning motorcyclists in the state. If you’re a biker, this is the perfect opportunity for your voice to be heard. If you want to learn more info on how you can become involved, visit abatewis.org. Other states, including Illinois and Iowa, have similar events that take place each year.
