It is with great sadness that ABATE of Indiana reports the passing of Michael "Balls" Farabaugh. Balls was arguably the driving force behind much of the success the motorcyclists rights movement has enjoyed. Balls was one of the pioneers of rider education in Indiana and his influence carried into many states and has certainly resulted in saving thousands of lives. Beyond the Hoosier State, Balls had an impact on motorcycling nationally and internationally as well. He worked with numerous organizations such as the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), and actually started the Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF). His ideas and inspirational character motivated many of the leaders in the motorcycling community, and that continues as a lasting legacy. Indeed, riders around the world owe a debt to Michael "Balls" Farabaugh. Ride in Peace, Balls. We'll see you on the other side.

We are sadden to announce the passing of a dear friend of ABATE, former Region 9 Director, 36 year member, and honorary Lifetime Member Gene Sutton.

Service for Gene Sutton: meet at Buchanan Funeral home in Austin, Wednesday at 12:30 pm. Final ride to Cemetary with Graveside service (Brother Leon) at 1pm. (thank you for the update, Gina)
We lost a great friend today. Gene Sutton passed away. He was very big in ABATE. Region 9. He was a leader in his community of Henryville. He ran the food pantry for years. He was a defender of motorcycle rights. He was a GREAT man. RIP my brother you will be missed.
