My most recent dream bike was an '03 Aprilia Mille R, but then I went to a Triumph demo day on Friday and a KTM one a few weeks before. I got to ride some great bikes, KTM 690 singles and 990 twins, Triumph 1050 and 675 triples. Really liked the 690 Duke, Super Duke, Street Triple, and Speed Triple. But I lust after this: That 675 triple is the most engaging and exciting engine I've ever experienced. I've ridden a bunch of inline 4s, v4s, twins, and singles. The 1050 triple was great, too, a torque monster but I like engines that can rev a bit more (redline was at least 3000 rpm higher on the smaller engine). I was laughing in my helmet the whole time I was on the bike. Effortless power, telepathic handling, stone-wall brakes, light weight, and the sound... bike heaven. Except for the riding position. But going by the title of the thread I'm sure I could handle it for a day. Longer than that I'd go with a Street Triple R and an Arrow pipe and settle in for a nice long-term relationship.
