I had a Honda MB5 at 17 before passing my car test.

Then took my bike test in my mid 20's and had...
Kawasaki GPX250
Suzuki GSXF1100
Honda CBR1100XX Superblackbird

Haven't had a bike for about 10 years, sold the Honda as it wasn't getting much use and put the money into buying the MGF, which still doesn't get much use, but at least the insurance is cheaper.
