i bet you thats part of it! HARLEY! they have money up the ass so they can do what they want. for instance, "work" with the government.
i can see nowadays with custom bikes and kit bikes etc, that harley's sales could be dropping. not many people are buying the bone-stock-everyone-has-harley. everyone wants a one-off custom. and for many, it's easier to open their pocket and buy a custom bike. rather then building one themselves, possibly from an off-the-shelf bike. so i think harley is at it again. instead of attacking the jap bike companys, (which they have done many times in the past), this time they're directly targeting us. so yes FTF.
