The Beef-Bike Tariff
By now everyone has heard about the efforts by the Beef Industry to impose a 100% tax on 51-500cc EU bikes. If not, here is a good article:

Quite honestly I don’t like the idea of our beef either so I don’t blame them for not wanting it. No one wants hormones and antibiotics in their food. But we in the U.S. consume it in large quantities every year (well, I don’t so much, but! ). The unrelated ‘we’ll tax your bike if you don’t take our beef’ imposition is ridiculous.
