    Winter Layup - 1995 Ducati 900 Supersport

    Thread Starter: OddDuck

    Time for major work, unfortunately. Frame's cracked :( Motor is making oil disappear and power isn't what it used to be either, according to seat of pants dyno. Time for the winter layup, get in, strip it, sort out various issues that have been waiting for a while. Step 1: take it to bits.

      Just remember...that even if you think you have a handle on the new Give Way rule, the other person may not.

      Being Vigilant is the key.

      Or some of us simply must make things harder for ourselves. New tyres (knobbly 50/50 tyres of course) being fitted tomorrow with a forecast of rain and the rules changing

      Don't be worried about tomorrow. Everyone will be attentive. It's the days and weeks that follow that are the real concern as people's vigilance drops and reflexes take over. Those 10 and 20 year old driving reflexes..

      Yep, just like when youre first learning to drive. Every intersection youre thinking "who gives way", after a few months it becomes habit/instinct and you stop thinking. Im predicting next weekend is when the accidents will happen....you may have learnt the new rules, but has your subconcious?..

      pfft all is well, they either know the new rules or buy me a new vehicle.

      No one knew what the old ones were. How will a rule change make ANYTHING different from the "watch out for myself first" MO you should be using?
