Day 38-41 Chiang Mia to Chiang Rai

Still bloody wet

storm 34 °C

We'll have moved onto Chiang Rae from Chiang Mia,got the Green Bus up yesterday which is Thailands National bus service and so far seem okay reasonably cheap and the the big plus they have A/C took about 3 hours to cover the 180 odd Km's

Got into the hotel about 2pm which gave me plenty of time to organise. Bike for the next week,after the last couple of scooter's and hills thought I would try something a bit bigger so have ended up with 250 dirt bike,$180 for 7 days hire,then it was back to the accommodation for an early tea and bed was feeling a bit puffed after enjoying Father's Day a bit to much!!

So got up this morning with the plan to do a loop from Chiang Rai out to Phayao and check the lake and scenery out but once again the weather gods decided it was time for a bit on monsoon action,so head breakfast and few coffee's and gave it a bit of time and the rain eased up a bit so bit the bullet and took off

The 1st 40km it continued to drizzle and and that was okay had a rain coat on and everything was good,then for next 20 km it poured,this fine still had a rain coat keeping my dry but the open face helmet was my down fall going faster than about 20km it felt like I was getting sand blasted in the face!!

But after that down fall the weather cleared up ,which let me take a few pictures, end up doing about 220km today in about 6 hours with a few stops along the way, hopefully the weather is good tomorrow and think I will head up into the mountains near the Thai/Myanmar border
