Lightbulb What was your first bike?

I've been reading a few threads where people were reminiscing about their first bike. I had a few dirt bikes but the first sport bike I ever owned was a 1998 Honda CBR F3. I got it used in mint condition... thought I was the coolest... until someone in a Ford Explorer didn't see me. Totalled. Oh, well. What was yours???
