    My first fully road legal was a brand new H100s but I'd been using various stuff on the road since the age of about 14 including going to school on a 750/4 at about 15 :oops::D

    Suzuki GT50 followed by Yamaha RD250A, one of those bikes you wish you had kept hold of, ah hindsight.

    Something similar to above. I rattle canned mine in Vauxhall Honey Stardust (metallic gold) and it had knobbly tyres , rat trap pedals, huge cow horn bars and all the other cool bits of the day. Converted it to a ten speed derailleur after a few years.

    Gave it away to my next door neighbour who promptly had it nicked.

    Great bike. Loved the cow horns, much better than ape hangers.

    I had a BMW F650GS as my first bike. Owned it 3 months and it went back to the dealer 5 times for warranty work, only got to ride it for about 3 weeks in total. The last time I took it in I handed the keys back and had my money back.

    Then brought a CBR1000F, fantastic bike and very comfortable but sold it after a couple of years due to not using it (Which I now regret) but kids were little and it wasn't going to be used anytime soon.

    Then the kids got older so I went looking for another CBR1000F but discovered the BBird, which I'm never going to sell. If I fancy a change in the future it will be in addition to the bird, not a replacement.
