Could this possibly be the best motorcycling route in Thailand? In my opinion it is certainly in top 5. If there is a single mountain ridge road in Thailand that resembles racing track, it is R1081 in Nan province. As a former sport bike rider I can say with high degree of certainty, accomplished sport bike enthusiasts would love to tear up and down this baby. This what looks to me as a Road Runner, cartoon like road which I promptly christened as such, is an absolute delight for any rider; excellent road surface, suitable for all types of bikes, hardly any traffic at all, stunning scenery, mountain vistas, high elevation ridge-line road littered with steep switchbacks, long sweeping curves passing through sleepy highland hamlets and farmland. It has all the ingredients every motorcyclist craves for, to test their skills or simply enjoy the leisurely ride.
