ABATE of Wisconsin Gets "Colors Ban" Lifted

After a Motorcycle Club "Colors" ban, ABATE of Wisconsin works with local officials and business owners to get the restrictive rule removed.
MIDDLETON, Wis. - Oct. 13, 2014 - PRLog -- This summer, the Quaker Steak & Lube restaurant in Middleton, WI had a couple of issues with a few of the attendees at their regular Bike Nights. Because the attendees in question happened to be patched Motorcycle Club members, the Middleton Police Chief started to enforce a "No Colors" provision that was in Quaker Steak & Lube's permit to hold their Bike Nights. Anyone wearing any type of Motorcycle Club logo or insignia ("colors") was told that they either needed to remove the piece of clothing bearing the "colors" or they needed to leave. ABATE of Wisconsin found this action to be not only discriminatory but heavy-handed on the part of the police department.

ABATE of Wisconsin sprang into action and set up a meeting with the Middleton Police Chief with the management from Quaker Steak & Lube invited as well. The police chief agreed that lifting the ban was the right thing to do and stated that he'd like to work again with ABATE of Wisconsin on any future issues that the organization might be able to help with. ABATE of Wisconsin will act as a liaison to the Motorcycle Clubs to try to prevent any future incidents from occurring. Management from Quaker Steak & Lube was happy with the outcome of the meeting as the restaurant wants to include all motorcyclists on their Bike Nights and even remarked how they "love working with ABATE of Wisconsin!"

ABATE of Wisconsin, Inc. which was founded in 1974 is a motorcycle rights and safety organization dedicated to "Freedom of the Road." ABATE of Wisconsin's goal is to give the motorcyclists of Wisconsin a strong, united voice with regard to their future, their way of life, their safety, and their legal rights as motorcyclists and citizens.
