A move to name Harley-Davidson the official Wisconsin motorcycle has seized up in the state Legislature.

The bill’s sponsor asked that it be held back while he looks into some worries that people have about noise pollution and also about giving a private company that much recognition.

Meanwhile, according to the Associated Press, a bill naming the official state microbe passed in a 7-1 vote. It’s the germ that converts milk into cheese.

The Harley-loving legislator, a Democrat from Milwaukee, hopes his bill will move forward in a month or so.
