You could get one of the wall maps of the world - most of these have the flags as a border, then cut out and stick on with a clear epoxy - would weatherproof as well as stick.

Next trip I am taking a small selection of enamel paints so that I can paint the flags on as I go - will give me something relaxing to do in the down time. As I will be leaving the Ducati in the UK this time hopefully there will be less repairing to do!

I don't think not riding it works with Ducatis. Something on it will fall apart while it waits for you.

Google is your friend!

Just type in "world flag stickers" into Google and all your questions will be answered! There are a couple of good hits on E-Bay as well as many mail-order outlets.

Yes they are a bit temperamental like that, they need the right fuel or they sulk, if you leave them alone for a bit they cough and spit at you, if you leave them alone for too long the belt gets knackered and they become totally useless when you try and fire them up. They are alot like Italian women, except if you get your ducati really wet it stops communicating with you all together.
