We suggest the existence of gyroscopic effects in ring fluxon oscillators, which, due to the extremely narrow oscillation linewidths, could therefore be used as sensitive rotation rate sensors. For the sake of comparison we also improve on previous analytical determinations of the thermal background intensity for oscillating Josephson lines.
