A HISTORY LESSON
FIGHT IMPORT TARIFFS!!
The U.S. Trade Commission is continuing its’ attack on our rights as riders by refusing to remove motorcycles from the list of proposed import tariffs. U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer told a congressional committee that he is â€œsympatheticâ€ to American motorcyclists, dealerships and others, but he cannot remove small-displacement European motorcycles from a proposed import tariff while negotiations continue in a dispute with the European Union over U.S. beef imports.
Tell Lighthizer we need action, not sympathy! If these regulations are passed we not only stand to lose jobs, but also our way of life and the freedom to choose which motorcycle we want to ride.
Some background on the issue: The United States has proposed a tariff on the import of European motorcycles between 50-500cc engine sizes. The proposed tariff is in retaliation against the European Union’s policy on beef from the United States. The dispute is based completely in the agricultural industry and it is beyond wrong to impose penalties on the completely unrelated motocycle industry! The proposed tariff amount is 100%; this would effectively double the price of any European motorcycles and put them out of reach of the vast majority in our sport.
