    I have week to spare, so hiring a bike and doing a 4 day ride.
    I was supposed to be working in Laos but it has been postponed. I'll be there next week, and then to North Vietnam on a CRF 250 tour.

    Proposed Route

    Day 1 to Phayao

    Day 2 to Chiang Kham

    Day 3 to Chiang Khong

    Day 4 Chiang Mai

    Made it to Phayao, and enjoyed checking out the town.

    Wat Mae Kaet Noi is interesting.
    I like motorcycling and drinking beer, lucky I'm too good looking to go to hell.

    The 1091 to Nan Was great, but the 1148 is my favorite.
    I enjoyed checking out the murals at Wat Phumin.

    it's annoying, it directs the air straight into my face causing heaps of buffeting.

    Did't go according to plan, but was a great ride anyway. Ended up on the 1903, very scenic and no one else on the road
