My wife and I have these in our 1-car garage:
2009 Honda Rebel 250
2015 Yamaha R3
1992 CBR 600 F2
2015 Yamaha Star Bolt (942cc)
We're rebuilding the carburetor on the Rebel right now, so that we may sell it in good condition. I dislike the Honda Rebel so much, but it was an okay starter bike to learn what I like and don't like and what I want in a bike.
My wife loves her Bolt. The Bolt is her commuter bike as she has a ~50 minute work commute 5 days a week. I just can't get comfy on cruisers. My brain is telling me to lean forward, but the cruiser's like .."no," what with the forward pegs and whatnot. The sportbike position simply feels more natural to me, so I don't care much for her Bolt except it is a cool looking bike. That and it's really heavy (more gym days in my future).
The R3 is my perfect me bike, small, quick, sexy, comfortable. The CBR is my wife's "I want a sportbike" bike she caught for a good deal from a coworker needing cash for a car. The CBR is faster and much louder than my R3 but old school. I look forward to exploiting what pros they both have to offer and becoming a better rider all around. I'm lucky to have my wife who is a much better rider than me. Having these interests together is awesome.
As far as my dream bike, I have it already. It's the R3 by far but with a few modifications that I'm saving up for
