Letter From The President

 

Christmas has come and gone, the New Year is quickly approaching and I hope the holidays have been and will be good for all of our members. It has been a year that has seen motorcyclists continually injured and killed on our highways. In the newspapers, radio, television and the Florida legislature we are told it’s our fault even with no facts what so ever that proves that point. On December 19, 2016 HD 6009 was filed for the 2017 legislative session. This bill would take out the provision in the Florida statutes that allows us to ride without a helmet. For sixteen years we have ridden free and now as has been stated many times our lifestyle is under attack. We must defeat this bill and it will take all hands on deck to do this. We must get back to our roots as to why Abate of Florida, Inc. was formed, and that was to fight unjust laws and to protect motorcycle freedom and also provide safety information. Now is the time to act contact the Abate state Legislative officer and see what he wants you to do to help fight this very bad bill. We have moved the February state meeting to Ocala and we will have more information on this bill and our other legislative endeavors at that time.

Until then Ride Safe and Free!!!!!



James "Doc" Reichenbach II
