Welcome to Long Island ABATE

Dear Long Island ABATE Members and Supporters,

Please be advised that the Long Island ABATE meetings for July have been cancelled. We will keep you posted regarding our August meetings as we get closer to them.

Stay safe and healthy everyone!!

 

 

CALL TO ACTION FROM THE MRF
Please read below and do your part to have your Representative vote YES to support H.R. 2 Invest in America Act AKA the Highway Bill!!!
CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO VOTE!!

CALL TO ACTION!
Later this week, the full House of Representatives will take a final vote on H.R. 2, INVEST in America Act, also known as the “Highway Bill.” Ask your legislator to VOTE YES to support this legislation that would help protect the interests of motorcyclists around the country. This 2,000 plus page bill includes three important protections for motorcyclists, they are:

Sec 3011: The Stop Motorcycle Check Point Funding, which helps protect motorcyclists from profiling by law enforcement because of their mode of transportation or clothing.

Sec. 3012: Motorcyclist Advisory Council would be reestablished, allowing motorcyclists a seat at the table when discussing federal infrastructure programs.

Section 5304: Study on Safe Interactions Between Automated Vehicles and Road Users ensures that motorcycles are included in any safety study on autonomous vehicles and that motorcyclists are involved in government working groups on these autonomous vehicle studies.

Please take 2 minutes to reach out to your lawmaker and ask them to vote YES on H.R. 2. If this bill passes, the Senate will then be “on the clock” to pass a version of their Highway bill before the September 30th deadline.

Ride Free,
The DC Team

DONATIONS FOR LONG ISLAND ABATE

 

Please read :

Our Annual Veterans Appreciation Run permits have been denied by Riverhead & Southampton😢
Fortunately Sag Harbor still appreciates our Veterans and what we do for them!
Therefore, this Sunday, June 14th (Flag Day) a bunch of PATRIOTS are going to meet at the field across from the North Sea FD on Noyack Rd at 11:00 am. There will be a jug passed around for voluntary donations to support Veterans here on Long Island. (All donations will be quadrupled) At 11:45 we will depart and ride into Sag Harbor where Gold Star Mom JoAnn Lyles will be on the bridge named after her son LCPL Jordan Haerter, to greet us. Once we cross the bridge you are on your own to enjoy your day.
God Bless our Veterans! 🇺🇸

The 2020 Executive Board of Long Island ABATE was Sworn in by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone.
 
 

What is ABATE?

ABATE is a motorcyclists’ rights organization dedicated to preserving individual freedom and promoting safety. We fully support rider training, safety and educational programs.

ABATE defrays the cost of fighting for your rights thru runs and benefits. We encourage our members to become active in their local communities.

ABATE works to protect the rights of all motorcyclists through direct involvement in the political process.

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 America’s strongest motorcycle organization.

ABATE feels that all of us, from lifestyle rider to off-road-fan, are brothers and sisters with a common interest … riding free! Our members have joined forces to put an end to discriminatory legislation, to educate and to protect the freedom of all; both riders and non-riders alike. We do this not only to benefit us, but to promote a better image of motorcyclists in general!

ABATE stands for many things, but most of all, it stands for FREEDOM!

There are no special requirements for joining aside from an interest in promoting motorcyclists’ rights and safety. As a member, you are showing support and help in the ongoing struggle against anti-motorcycle legislation.

Dear Long Island ABATE Members,
 
An excerpt from the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team website:
 
“They are a softball team like you’ve never seen. Nearly twenty veterans of the post-9/11 era have come together to form WWAST; the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team. As their name suggests, everyone on the team was injured in the line of duty and wears prosthesis of some sort. Their mission: “to raise awareness, through exhibition and celebrity softball games, of the sacrifices and resilience of our military, and highlight their ability to rise above any challenge.”

Please click on the link below to read more about them.

https://www.warriorsny.org/

Please see the flyer below for their itinerary for this week.

Anyone participating in the motorcycle escort this Saturday June 22, for the WWAST, please be at the Radisson Hotel (110 Motor Parkway Hauppauge ) between 10:30-11:00 am. The escort will be leaving at 11:30 am. The Suffolk County PD will be leading the escort.
