Gudday Guys, Just doing the final planning for my next trip up your way next month, and a question or two if I may. The route from Nan to Chiang Khong, I was wondering which would be a more scenic ride, the 1091/1021 or the 1080/1148 to Chiang Kham, figuring that I will have ridden a bit of the 1091 getting to Nan 2 days before but in the other direction, and I will also have done a little of the 1080 getting to Tha Wang Pha for the Doi Phukha loop the day before. I have done the 1080/1148 before a couple of times, but never the 1091/1021 combo. Google maps show that as mostly flat. The second question is from Chiang Kham, do I then do the 1155 or the 1093 to Chiang Khong. I have ridden both, but recall that there was an old Bailey bridge on the Northern end of the 1093 which wasn't fun, but I do want to see the Phu Chi Fa and Pha Tang viewpoints that I missed out on the last time I rode it due mechanical troubles. I will be hiring a Versys (if they can get me one with a rear rack) or an ER6-n, so all on road stuff. My trip is basically arrive in Chiang Mai on Friday the 16th Nov, down to Nan on Sunday the 18th, Doi Phukha loop on the 19th, up to Chiang Khong on Tuesday the 20th, Chiang Rai on the 21st, day run to Sweet Mae Salong and Tha Ton on Thursday the 22nd, to Pai on the 23rd, Mae Hong Son on Saturday the 24th, Mae Sarieng on the 25th, and back into Chiang Mai on Monday the 26th. I then have a few days there before coming home on Thursday the 29th. I figured to get the bigger days done in the 1st week, then a much more relaxing pace for the 2nd. It also gives me some flexibility for those mechanical gremlins. Hoping to meet a few of you while I am there this time, I will drop into the X center, hopefully on Saturday afternoon the 17th, but definitely on the 27th and 28th. Thanks, Dean Watson.
