That the Sheraton in Abuja Nigeria the Hotel Manager lets you camp round the back for free, and two for one during happy hour! Lots of the overlanders end up there to get all those lovely visas!! Tony in Togo there is a KTM dealer for supplies, they have a selection of tyres (21” and 18” rears, don’t think he has stocks 17” but could be wrong). You’ll meet our overlanders on visa stops so check out the posts regarding visas.
Up North West Africa is great for bush camping, no fences and i loved it. I was solo for parts of my trip down and never had any trouble. Ride down a track off the main road then drat off and find a quiet spot with a bit of fire wood and get a brew on!
A wee tip, I carried a small light material hammock (also used as ground sheet, cover for the bike, tarp to keep sun/rain off you…). Roll the bike back on the centre stand tie on end to the rear frame and other side using a tie down strap so it’s adjustable to fit any tree! It’s a seat while you preparing your food by the fire, then lay back and relax away from those bloody ants!
