We are excited to announce our new “Bates Brigade” ambassador program! In an effort to spread awareness for the brand in the motorcycle market, we are looking to partner with different types of influential motorcyclists who represent our target consumers. We look forward to building lasting relationships with these initial members and more in the future as together we share the Bates PowerSports message of protection, performance and all-day comfort.

The initial Bates Brigade includes a professional road racer, a stunt rider, a motorcycle shop owner, a custom motorcycle builder, and a photographer. If you are interested in joining the Bates Brigade, click here to fill out the application form.
