Act Now... Congress Votes Thursday!
The House of Representatives has scheduled a vote Thursday on H.R. 1435, the “Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act.” H.R. 1435 would amend the Clean Air Act to prevent a ban on the sale of internal combustion engines, effectively trumping any state law that outlaws their sale.
Now is the time to have your voice heard! Let Congress know you support the right to choose the type of engine you buy.
Contact your Member of the House of Representatives and ask them to vote for H.R. 1435.

Mike Stock (6-14-2023) We are riding safer this year but we can always do better. Last year to date 830 crashes with 39 fatalities - this year 630 crashes with 30 fatalities. Alcohol last year 62 crashes, this year 42 crashes. Speed last year 156, this year 117 with the same fatalities - 8.

(6-14-2023) This year ABATE of Ohio turned 45 years old. That’s right anyone born after 1978 wasn’t even alive when Ohio had a mandatory Helmet Law. 45 years of telling the government when something just isn’t right, educating riders on safe riding practices and trying to get people in cars to look for us and stop running over us. That stuff hurts (substitute any word you want for stuff.). And I would like to send out my personal thanks to all the members and officers: past, present and future because you are the ones who make things happen for almost 4 and a half decades possible..................( Read more....)

(5-7-2023) Getting prepared to start the anti-profiling bill has taken me longer to set up than I expected. But it is time to get moving on this! I have begun to reach out to the legislators in my region (Zero), that I am most familiar with, to run my initial ideas past. Most of them are aware that this legislation was coming from attending our regional meetings already. Once we get the official language approved................... ( Read more )

(9-13-2023) Bob and I rode up to attend Bill Bish's funeral and rode in the motorcycle escort to the National Cemetery. It was just sad. This is the 2nd funeral escort that we have rode in this summer and I never want to do another one, but I know that probably won't be. Bill Bish was a one of kind man! I loved him but didn't know him quite as well as I wanted to........... ( Read more )

| At the Motorcycle Riders Foundation Meeting of the Minds 2022, ABATE of Ohio was presented with the Ron Shehard Safety Recognition Award. This is an Annual Award recognizing an achievement in Motorcycle Safety. ABATE of Ohio was awarded this in recognition of the work done to modify HB338 into a bill the Motorcycle Safety Community was comfortable with. ABATE of Ohio had to come up with a new strategy after the bill passed the Ohio House with only one vote against. With ABATE of Ohio’s friends on the Ohio Senate side of the Statehouse, the bill was amended into something acceptable.
Thank You to all who helped in this effort.
