    Hi Marc

    Noticed your post about the sliders, they do look good. Not convinced on the width though.

    Received the Crit'Air sticker today, didn't realise that it was going to be so large. Can they be removed once applied to the screen? Don't really want to apply this and then have it on the bike for ever, if it were half the size maybe I wouldn't mind so much.

    I can't see the sticker on your bike in the pictures that you posted today.

    Chas,

    Got my frame sliders mounted today, as well as the hot grips and new Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3. I got some informations on the Rosso 2 mounted previously.
    They made in total around 4600 km, and the first 2400 were in duo, and from my own experience it is quite a good figure based on the road profile described by previous owner and the one I did myself...

    Yes, I was about to do the same mistake, then thought visitor messages seem to be visible to everyone...

    Chas,

    Removed last message, as you may want to keep your phone/mail address private. Noted down on my side. I will drop you my phone by Private message (same as my mail address you should have already).

    Few additional details to consider:
    July is the Tour de France period. You should rather check you are not in conflict with a Tour de France Etape, otherwise your plan is doomed.
    Normally at that period col are all opens. But it happens sometimes there is exceptions. As well, plan for alternative roads in case of lot of wind (cime de la bonette may be to be forgotten in this case for example)...

    Hope that all of those elements will be of help...

    Day 6:
    After Vercors, I would play a bit with Chartreuse. From Grenoble : Saint Pierre de Chartreuse, Col du Cuheron, Saint Pierre d'Entremont, Saint Christophe sur Guiers, Saint Jean de Couz, Corbel, Entremont le Vieux, Col du Granier, Au pas de la Fosse, then rather than going on thr right, I would go for Cognin and Saint Sulpice on the left, Col de l'Epine, then Vacheresse and le Borget du Lac, and Col du Chat, then Yennes, Culoz, Col du Grand Colombier, Hotonnes and then as per you point 8 and following (and whatever you do, there is a sort of gap until you are in Beaujolais)...
    Have not much advices on the rest.

    Day 5:
    You have a choice to do here. Either you choose to spend lot of time near Valberg and go the way you propose, and it may then look quite disappointing when you will be on the N85 (nice, but to really enjoy, you need to be wide open, which is not really advisable a Saturday at this period - too much cars), or you choose to shorten the first part to go in Vercors before going to Grenoble. I would skip Annot and le Verdon (that's not even the most interesting part of it) to go through Villeneuve d'Entraunes, le Col de la Cayolle and Barcelonette. Then I would look to go towards Gap and Die and then enjoy a bit of Vercors. From Die : col du Rousset, Vassieux en Vercors, Bouvante, Saint Jean en Royans, Sainte Eulalie en Royans, Chorance, La Balme de Rencurel, Saint Gervais, Cognin les Gorges, Malleval en Vercors, Rencurel, Villas de Lans, Lans en Vercors, Saint Nizier du Moucherotte, Grenoble...

    Day 4
    Here there is something that I don't understand (and I'm not sure again that you got enough points there). Why going to Cold du Galibier, and going back then (specially considering the most interesting part is the one behind this segment, with a very nice road up to Saint Michel de Maurienne). I would personally skip this segment to focus down on the map. From Pont de L'Alpe, Briançon, Cervieres, Izoard, Platrière, l'Ange Gardien, Saint Marcellin de Vars, Col de Vars, Saint Paul sur Ubaye, Jausiers, Col de la Bonette (and cime de la Bonette - 2860m, highest road in Europe, make sure you add this point : 44.320336,6.804491 it's a loop anyway) then Le Pra, Vens, Saint Etienne de Tinnée, Saint Salvaire, Saint Sauveur sur Tinée, Roubron, Valberg.
    This will be an heavy day, but with very nice roads (last time I went there was with my 955 Daytona)...

    Day 3
    Not much remark on the day 3, but you may need to add more point to ensure your GPS is not going to send you back:
    looking at ITN Converter and BaseCamp, I'm quite sure what I see is not what you envisioned but rather :
    Albertville, Cormet de Roselend, Val D'Isère, Bonneval sur Arc, Col du Mont-Cenis, Suza, Montgenèvre, Le Pont de l'Alpe (which is quite the best itinerary you can do considering your start and end point).

    Chas,

    starting here :
    One first remark :
    You should generally consider Departmental (D, yellow mark on ViaMichelin) roads rather than National roads (N, Red mark on ViaMichelin). Benefits are multiple :
    - less traffic
    - less cops
    - rides are often more interesting
    - more fun at a lesser speed
