    Thanks Marc, wasn't aware that these conversations were public

    I've sent you an email.

    Marc, sorry, I don't get alerts for these for some reason.

    I have been busy over the last couple of days and it's late now. Will have a read and review of the information that you have kindly posted tomorrow and get back to you with any questions.

    Proposed routes:
    2017-07-07 - Lauzet to Valberg visiting Col du Galibier first as we are doing this the day before (both of these routes not displaying correctly in Google Maps due to current snow closures)
    2017-07-08 - Valberg to Grenoble (not sure about final destination point yet)
    2017-07-09 - Grenoble to Digoin

    Any suggestions on improving the routes for the last two days above are welcome. Please feel at liberty to join us for whichever days you like. I can let you know hotel details if you want to make more than one day of it.

    Full trip as a GPX file.

    Will look forward to seeing these mounted to your bike when we hopefully meet in July.

    Speaking of our trip can I ask about the Air Quality Certificate required in Grenoble? I presume that technically we will require one of these to pass through the area, or is it just necessary in the city of Grenoble itself? They look easy enough to apply for and not expensive (< €5 including postage to UK). My TVL qualifies though I'm not sure about Carl's Ducati 996. I have yet to establish exactly where the friend we're staying with in/near Grenoble lives. She's a good friend of my sister but I know her quite well from many years ago and we stayed with her in Paris in the early '90s.

    I can say with some certainty that we will be leaving Valberg on the morning of the 8th of July, staying in Grenoble that evening and then riding onward to Digoin on the 9th. Will forward routes.

    Hi Marc

    It's good news that the parts came and a promising sign that your dealer seems more confident about their general availability.

    A shame about the fit of the MV sliders. Can you make the spacers yourself or are they too difficult to be made at home? Are these the spacers that go between the slider frame and the alternator cover that the two bolts pass through?

    Got all the parts delivered. My dealer was saying he got almost everything backordered in the past delivered now. And he was saying that during the last months, it was the same for other brands. He told me it was particularly the case with Triumph as well... Seems that winter is never a good time to get parts... Anyway, got the frame sliders, and they don't mount: I need to find four spacers of about 5 mm, as the frame is larger than the Rivale/Stradale one. I didn't want to wait for dealer to mount when mounting the hot grips as the meeting is far ahead, and got them by postal services. I guess this will need to wait :-/

    Last year was dreadful, neither bikes or parts coming out of the factory for for a few months apparently. My dealer couldn't even get oil filters. As you say things are now better though some suppliers are probably still not happy about supplying them with components. I doubt if they'll ever have the distribution and support capability of a larger manufacturer.

    It's difficult to be sure where the delay is, my old dealer was very slow in getting parts. My new one seems to get then quickly, maybe it's just luck, I don't know.

    3D print of the plastic part of the slider, great idea! Be sure to post a thread with pics to the forum once you get the sliders.

    That's a shame Marc. I'm glad to hear that the damage isn't too bad. It's rather embarrassing when it happens. I found, when I dropped mine last year, that struggling to get the bike upright again is what did most of the damage to the pannier, it was sliding around on the road. In the end I waited for help with one riding buddy with his feet holding the rear wheel in place and another helping me 'cleanly' lift the bike upright.

    The slider won't prevent damage to your pannier or the hand-guard, well with the R&G ones that is certainly the case. They are all points of contact with the bike toppled over.

    One consideration is availability of a replacement slider part should it be 'used'. Can you get just the plastic slider for the MV ones? Maybe at this stage you might have other concerns though.
