Saw a beautiful French Motobecane in the shop today. Silver with pinkish maroon trim on the lugs.

I answered Cannondale, but in terms of frequency (times per week) as opposed to miles I probably ride my Giant Bowery more often.

You don't list any of my bikes either:

GT Ti Edge
GT 853 Edge
Calfee Tetra
MASI Gran Criterium
GT Zaskar
Hercules 3-Speed

Most miles on the Ti-GT (SRAM Force), the Calfee for double centuries.

While on the subject I have a question :

While components like shifter, cassete, etc are few to choose from and the price range of the top notch is similar, top frames prices range from 1,000 to 4,500; how should I go about trying different frames in order to learn what frame I like? (I leave in the San Fernando Valley and don't have a preffered LBS just yet. I am not racing but riding alot).
In other words; what frame are you dreamming of?

I voted for LeMond, because that's my newest bike and the one I find myself thinking about and actually wanting to ride. But I also currently have a DEAN and a Mercier (not the French kind.)

I used to ride Trek and Nishiki, and aeons ago I rode Bianchi.
