    My son (17) on a Ninja 300 and me on the Diavel had great fun on R1095 in September.
    Good road conditions!

    Well this could soon be the best one...R1290 Chiang Saen to Chiang Khong.??
    GTR - IMG_0250.JPG

    They have done an amazing job rebuilding R1290 alongside the Mekong, upstream from Chiang Khong & well the section from the Huai Sai Mann viewpoint is a total adrenalin rush for me now.

    The elevation profile from the Muang Khan / R4007 turn off to the R1290 T Junction at Chiang Khong city.

    Only 13 kms but what an amazing ride. Short enough to do several runs in the late afternoon & stop for a coffee at the View


    The 53 kms from Chiang Saen to Chiang Khong
    GPS-Map001.
