    It was an ugly day this past Sunday (fourth straight weekend of rain here), but we managed to get in a 40-miler on some back roads before the drizzle and mother's day festivities took over the day. Afterwards I didn't have any time to pose them up real pretty, but here's my 2002 YZF600R and my dad's Honda VTX1300.

    My bike is nothing special. Just a mainly-stock YZF with a Vance & Hines S4 on it. I had some issues initially with the middle of the pipe where the two separate parts meet. Air was leaking through there, it sounded bad and it left a black smudge on the silver swingarm. You can still sort of see where it was. I patched it up with steel putty and it's fine now, but I'm not overly impressed with the quality.

    Those side bags on your dad's bike look pretty cool.

    The VTX looks good. How long have you been riding the 600R? Is it the first sport bike you've had?

    I rode it to work today (~50 miles, all highway) which put my mileage total at about 330 miles.

    And yes, my first sportbike.
