Took the Scrambler on a 'getting to know you ride' to Muang Khong today and what a lovely ride it was. From CNX it was up the 107 to Chiang Dao for a healthy Breakfast at Nest 1, then off into the national park on to the road to Muang Khong. Its a very scenic road with little to no traffic as it dosen't go any where else. The cement road finishes at Muang Khong. The morning was cool and cloudy but the views through the clouds spectacular, winding up into the hills For the most part the road is nice and windy surrounded jungle although there is quite a lot of subsidence along the way. The park gates at the Muang Khong end of the road The river looked pretty full at the village but the village is nothing much to look at yet the surrounding countryside is superb The problem with this ride is that you have to come back the same way, or go bush, and I think you need to be a dirt biker to manage that. So back the same way for me with a few spectators roadside looking pretty relaxed A Lisu village I think and very pretty but I didnt see a soul You have to watch out for fallen trees. There's a lot of this sort of thing but the road and the surrounds make it magic little ride Stopped at the X-Centre for lunch at 1.00pm on the way home and home by 2.30pm as the day started to get stinking hot. Total distance 236 kms and a really enjoyable little ride. Love the bike too.
