Which group to join?

Was thinking of joining A.B.A.T.E. or A.M.A. or maybe some other "help out the motorcyclest" group. Could use any input you may have. My local A.B.A.T.E. group seems to have alot going for it, but was still woundering and needing help deciding.

If you cannot join both, my vote is for ABATE

The AMA gets my vote. I've been a member since 1967.

I belong to both.

AMA fights for national rights and some state issues where ABATE does the same, they also contribute to your local area and chapter. I pay less than $80 a year for both. I think the moneys well spent to have someone looking at out for our rights.

Why not both? They are good organizations and both have their advantages. It's kinda like being a member of the VFW and the American Legion.
