Does anyone boat on Lake Michigan ever, or seen any other MCs? The reason I ask is the last two times I went out there on another persons boat, I saw two fairly unique MCs.

The first one was a v-drive 2nd gen xstar without a tower. It was white and red, and I saw no indicators that a tower had ever been on the boat. Must be an early '99?

The one I saw this past week really blew me away, it was a 1st gen Xstar DD with the typical green gel coat seen on those boats. I was too far away to see the condition of it.

So has anyone else seen these two? Or are they members on here? Just curious.

Traxx has some good pics of his out there.

Not in Illinois or Indiana, but we have been in a few times in South Haven, MI and make a run up as far as Holland, MI and back. Here's one of my wife and I following some friends up the coast. Lake was like glass for a good part of the day. Turned into 2-3 footers at the end of the day but the 55 handled it superbly.

I have seen the green DD star you are talking about once on the Chicago river.

Mostly I see a guy who has an X15 moored underneath Dicks and then I have seen some white Xstar and an X30 out there before.

If you ever want to try and get a few guys to go one day i'd be down. I have been twice on Lake Michigan @ DT Chicago this year.

Fun trip for those who don't get to see Chicago from that perspective. But I don't mind the change in scenery either.
