Nan Scooter

Highway 1081/1169 Bo Kluea to Nan – Part 2

Continuing on from Part 1of this video you carry on along highway 1081 for around 7KM before taking a left on highway 1169 which runs you into Nan.  Miss the turn and you will head back up north on the 1081 and to the 1080.   Nan has a large scooter shop which is always fun to look around and on the street you can find a number of funky old custom scooters.  I am afraid not many photos on this part of the trip apart from Nan scooters!

Google map links for exact locations on this video: start of video / finish of video.  As you can see from the google street view and my video the start of this part of the trip the road has under gone a major resurfacing and widening and for the next couple of years should be a joy to ride!  Enjoy it while you can!

Highway 1081 starts up north in Chaloem Phra Kiat and videos from there can be found here: Part 1 and Part 2.

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.

You can find excellent bike reports and information of northland Thailand over at Golden Triangle Riders
