Just curious if the route from BKK-Lampang is worth doing as a straight 6-7 hour run on a 250cc, or is the route scenic and worth stopping in one of the towns along the way? Cheers

Fantastic, thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a try. You wouldn't have the GPS co-ordinates for the guest house by any chance? Cheers

Fly straight into Cnx, dont bother thinking about renting a bike in Bkk & riding up.

I second Davidfl on the above. Time spent riding up there means less time to enjoy riding the fabulous GT roads themselves. Flying is the way to go!
