In a display why the state legislature needs to be a part time position, a committee approved a measure making Harley Davidson the State motorcycle.
If there were indeed a need to name a state motorcycle, I would vote for Harley Davidson myself. That goes without question, even though Polaris's Victory motorcycles are partly manufactured in Wisconsin too. Never heard of them? Google them, They are relatively new but make full sized Vee Twin cruisers and touring motorcycles.
No, the issue isn't motorcycles. It is a bunch of elected officials being paid to twiddle their thumbs until someone gets an idea on something to keep them busy. One the bright side, they could have been dreaming up some new law to stifle the economy.
A state bird, flower and so forth is fine. Giving free advertising and endorsement to a product is not. If this is to be the case though, I'm proposing that Trane be the official State furnace and air conditioner. They are located in La Crosse. No other brand is located in Wisconsin. Seems fair enough to me!
Exposing the absurd by being absurd.
