Meet Marmaduke

2009 was going to be the year I replaced my beloved Gilera Nexus, hero of many a day out and European tour. But a dealership in St. Albans is changing hands and the outgoing owner was selling all the stock at trade prices, and so on Saturday I came into possession of a Gilera GP800.

It's an 800cc scooter capable of 120mph. But that's less important to me than the fact that it rides and looks like an absolute dream. (Weighing a quarter of a ton, though, it handles like a complete nightmare when I push it, and I will have to be very careful how I park to ensure I'm able to extract it again.)

'The GP800' is a bit of a mouthful, so: Meet Marmaduke.



The Nexus sold on eBay last night for a quarter of what I paid for it in 2005. It deserves its own post, and it shall have one.
