Some Harley-Davidson customers say they'll boycott the company if it moves production overseas.

The company announced in June it would move some production out of the U.S.

It was a response to retaliatory tariffs by the European Union following President Donald Trump's decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on the EU and other countries.

Harley-Davidson says those tariffs could cost it $90 million to $100 million annually.

On Sunday, Trump expressed disapproval of Harley's plans, tweeting: "Many @harleydavidson owners plan to boycott the company if manufacturing moves overseas. Great!"
