    The article starts out with lots of good news for H-D and then ends up with the bad news. A 56% EU tariff screw job. The article doesn't explain why:

    I'll make one more comment: Note the sentence at the end of the article: By comparison, motorcycles from European OEMs shipped to the U.S. face a 1.2% tariff for displacements up to 800cc and 2.4% for motorcycles with larger engines. So it doesn't look like tit for tat between the U.S. and the EU. Is this about beef?
