Remember your first machine???

Just curious about what machines you guys have owned in the past. All of us in our different team colours might not have much in common now, but who knows, maybe Mr. Arctic Cat, or Sir Skidoo got his roots on a Rupp or a John Deere.

Here's my list:

81' Yamaha SRV
92' Skidoo Mach 1
97' Arctic Cat ZRT600
98' Skidoo MXZ500
00' Skidoo MXZ500
01' Yamaha SRX

Looks like I've gone full circle.
