Ok folks this is a special tribute Tag. My riding buddy Michael had cancer take him about an hour ago. That's him in the pic.

This is the twin cites and WI tag.

That could have been a very fast turn-around. I posted as I was eating beakfast at Perkins. You could have grabbed the tag before I was back on my bike. I really wanted to use the large moose but decided the angle wasn't right.

Here's part:

Legend has it that about a hundred years ago an old Norwegian bachelor farmer name Torvaald Kjorvak found a wounded moose calf in the northern part of the Black River Forest when he was hunting one day. The calf was injured and starving and its mother was nowhere to be found. Torvaald brought the young animal back to his barn and nursed it back to health.

Now Torvaald came from a long line of inventors back in the old country. It was part of his nature to experiment, and he had been working on a new fortified grain mixture for his livestock, but with no success. When he gave the mysterious mixture to his beef cattle it caused excessive gas buildup in the poor animals, and rather more unfortunate than usual olfactory consequences for anyone standing downwind of the herd, but it didn't improve their nutrition or health one bit.

He decided to try the mixture on the moose, and from the start it was amazing. The animal grew quicker and bigger than Torvaald had ever seen an ungulate animal grow before. The mixture was a wonder drug for the moose. After a full year of feeding, the bachelor farmer noticed something strange beginning to happen, apart from the fact that this critter was now almost twelve feet tall.

It was starting to turn an odd color. It might have been a high level of beta carotene in the alfalfa mixture or it might have been an unusual genetic glitch in his pet moose, but either way, the animal was turning orange. Not a bright orange at first, more like a dusty tangerine in the beginning. But it was changing color before Torvaald's eyes.

The smaller of the two is the Tag. Pretty sure you can see one from the other.
