I first joined ABATE of Illinois in 1978. Joined Eastern Illinois ABATE chapter in 2009. During 2013 served as Activities Coordinator for Eastern Illinois ABATE. I've enjoyed motorcycling for the past 40 years and I'm very thankful for ABATE and other MROs that have provided me the freedom of choice when I ride. Feel free to email, text or call with any questions or feedback. If you get voicemail I will return your call as soon as possible.
