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!
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!
