After my Magnum ice cream break my journey continues along highway 1081 to Bo Kluea. The road slowly improves although it is not till past Bo Kluea that you can relax and trust what is beyond the next corner. Video of that section and onto Nan to follow later.

If you missed the part 1 of highway 1081 you can find it here
Ride carefully and always within your ability. The video shows speed (it is not completely accurate and has some inconsistencies), elevation, heading, distance along the route and a squiggly line representing the road with a red dot showing the current location. This video was shot in April 2014 and roads in Thailand do change over the years, a once pristine section of tarmac can degrade and likewise a bad section can be resurfaced and become as smooth as silk! Leave a comment if you have an up to date report.
