This sounds like the filthy rich oil interests have at least as much control of the EU as they do the US! Looks like the regular guy's going to have as bad a time in Europe as we are here.



Fat Cats are Fat Cats where ever you go and they own the press so this'll be interesting to watch.

I've been watching this debate for about 18 months or so and it doesn't suprise me. Evil politicians will willingly kill one industry if another has enough money to contribute to their pet causes. The auto indusrty is using safety to kill the motorcycle industry and it will work if the motorcycling community doesn't respond.

WTF?



I read the article. Where do you get "filthy rich oil interests" from? If anything, it sounds like an environmentalist position.

This seems a bit odd. Europe has Honda and Yamaha factories, Ducati, Triumph etc. They will have to modify to EU standards except for mopeds and scooters(I expect). So, their popular road bike lines will have to be for export only. HD will not be able to sell to the EU unless they meet standards. No longer anything big in from Japan. I'll bet that will put a bit of a crunch in their market.
