Thank you. It was sold as a 57cm I think or a 56cm. It measures a hair under 57cm C/C on the top tube so I would call it a 57 suppose. It has been a good friend.

I've never owned a motorcycle. Wife's brother killed himself on one many years ago, she hates 'em.
I have sustained more injuries and more serious injuries on bicycles including a broken femur and hip and ensuing stroke that nearly finished me and took nearly three years to recover. This as both a life long cyclist and motorcyclist (not a biker!) and racer of both on and off road. But, I agree the potential is higher for the motor powered variety of two wheeler.
