- Do you enjoy the freedoms motorcycling brings?
- Do you love the feeling you get when you put your machine on the road?
- Do you want to always be able to enjoy these freedoms without more restrictions?
- Do you want to dress as you like, park where others park and be welcome in all public places?

If these are important issues to you as a motorcyclist, come and join us at a CBA/ABATE meeting. We will explain to you the importance of being a CBA/ABATE member and why you, as a motorcyclist, should remain alert and aware of political activities concerning motorcycling.

We are one of 21 statewide chapters.

In order to protect your right to ride, it is necessary that you include yourself among the thousands of North Carolina motorcyclists who have banded together to form the most effective grassroots motorcyclists' rights organization (MRO) in the state. Someone in the motorcycling community must take the action to monitor legislators to make sure they do not pass laws that adversely effect motorcyclists. Since the 1970s, the CBA has taken on this responsibility in North Carolina. We are concerned about supporting fair legislation and legislators and increasing the level of governmental funding for rider safety education. Through our Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Program (MSAP), we provide training classes for high school driver's education students and teach the new drivers to share the road with motorcycles.

CBA works to protect your rights at the state level. We work in conjunction with the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) to support fair federal legislation and we get involved with motorcycling on a national level by attending national motorcycling seminars and conferences.

Over the past few years, we have reached out to the community through various charitable efforts. At Christmas we donate toys and meals to less fortunate families, participate in the Marine Corps "Toys for Tots" toy runs, and have donated decorations and decorated nursing homes at Christmas time. We also hold an annual blood drive, donate to the Relay for Life to fund cancer research, and have donated gift baskets to the battered women's shelter. This past year, we organized a food drive to benefit the Food Bank of NC and made donations to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The Chatham CBA also holds a annual ride to raise funds for the Chatham County Council on Aging to support the operation and growth of Chatham County's two senior centers.

Chatham CBA is a grateful supporter of our military. We show our support for our soldiers by shipping cases of books and magazines to our deployed troops. Many of us are also members of the Patriot Guard Riders.

We also support our fellow riders by making financial donations to downed riders and attending fundraiser's to support our brothers and sisters in need.

As CBA members we have several goals. Riding more and sharing time with others with similar interests are some of them. With chapters in 20 North Carolina counties and almost 2000 members, the CBA is a family of riders who band together for group rides and events all across the state.

CBA is a true brotherhood and sisterhood of freedom loving riders who remain alert and aware of political activities concerning motorcycling. Many members of riding clubs and manufacturer sponsored clubs also complement their memberships in those riding clubs with a membership in the CBA. Having a membership in the CBA keeps them informed and educated on issues important to them and expands their friendships and fun ride opportunities. We will ride together, have fun, help the community, and also keep you informed.
