Shares of Harley Davidson declined in Tuesday's session after saying it would cut the number of bikes it was shipping to retail outlets because of a decline in expected demand. For the second quarter, the motorbike maker earned $1.62 a share, beating the analysts consensus of $1.46. Sales for the quarter were also better than what was expected. Harley almost halved the growth forecasts on its shipment plans for the second half of 2014 to only 3.5% to 5.5% from previous forecasts of 7% to 9%. U.S. motorcycle sales were down slightly but were offset by international sales which climbed slightly. Harley's CEO said the company is continuing to improve operational efficiencies.
