It includes more than 25,000 touring motorcycles and nearly 4,000 softail CVO's and trikes built between May 3rd and October 14th. The company says the hydraulic clutch problem could make it difficult for riders to slow or stop and could cause an accident.

NUMBER 3 - iPAD SALES DROP
It's a tough time for Apple. Sales of the iPad are falling and the company's share of the tablet market is in a tailspin.

Apple is hoping to turn things around Tuesday, when it is expected to reveal the first revamped iPad in a year.
