On Lake Wisconsin today... Is this an ocean!!?? OMG the waves why???
I was on lake wisconsin/wisconsin river and wow those were some waves. I dont ride standup so I was with my girlfriend and it was pretty unpleasant experience. IDK if its because of all the flooding or what but it wasnt very windy so idk if its always like that or not. We made the trip up there because all the places around home are no wake or closed . Im regretting going there now. The river was even bad. Is the river usually choppy there? I want to ride the fox river near chain o lakes is this a pleasant fairly smooth ride? Where do you recommend me ride im near Rockford but dont like the Rock.

Would you recommend we try lake michigan we were gonna go there today bender or winthrop harbor but i heard the winds would be too bad. Are they more of rollers in michigan then just a bunch of whitecaps that toss you. And are there calm days on michigan? Where do you suggest we go? I just have a Kawasaki 750SS and me and my girlfriend go on it.

If your by Rockford then try Starved Rock State park....That is on the Illinois River which is usually pretty nice..we ride there at least a couple times a year and its always been pretty good..lots of sandy shoreline,free launching....

Pretty sure chain is closed. Water too high. Water is very rough on weekends. When it opens, Better on the river south of the locks. Still, lots of places to stop.
Like sno stated, east of starved rock on IL. River pretty good.
Suprised Lake Wisconsin was that bad? Never been there.
What is the riding distance dam to dam?
