What was your first bike?

What was your first bike?
Just curious to see what bike everyone learned on...
How old were you when you started riding?

I was 22 and was about to graduate from college, so I bought myself a graduation present. I'd wanted a bike for as long as I could remember, but finally had the financial situation worked out so I could do it. I started on a 2000 CBR600 F4.

A Honda CB-250 "Nighthawk".
Blue and Chrome.

I started riding when I was 17 and I am now 25. I took the MSF rider course prior to geting a bike.

I was 15 and a half riding with my permit on a 20 year old Guzzi 500. It was sweet being able to ride around by myself at a time when I couldn't drive alone.
