Bulgaria-Senegal 2013 with Triumph Tiger 900

Hi there. Planned 45 day trip from Bulgaria to Morocco to Senegal in May-June 2013.
I bought an old Triuph Tiger 900 1998 which I intend to do this trip.
Now, I went to an old YAMAHA FJ1200 - 1989, and I'm not riding enduro. Naming some questions and I
* what improvements are needed and what to expect in Mauritania. If someone is traveling through Morocco, Mauritania, Western Sahara, Senegal I hear his advice.
Change brake pads, chain - DID, set bearings - SKF wheel and fork, wires, air filter,
fuel filter.
Spare relay, coil, wires, fuses, handle.
What tires should I choose?
Looking GPS Garmin maps for Morocco with black-roads

It's tarmac almost all the way, though a lot of the side roads in Senegal are sand, so something like Metzeler Tourance would be good. Personally I always ride Continental TKC80, but that might be an overkill.

Hi thanks for the reply. 1 month ago I accidentally came across your site.
As someone who has traveled. Dangers What can I expect in Mauritania. I found quite expensive Michelin Anak 2 - about 250 euro kit and Mitas N07 kit 150 euro. Is it true that Senegal is required yellow fever vaccine.

How match visa for Mali.Can the standard visa. Come out and get into the country: Senegal, Mauritania Morroko. i.e. double transit

In my ride report here you'll see an older Tiger. He was using Tourances but for the next trip says he'll get something more aggressive .

Hello, for financial reasons I picked model Mitas EO8 using regional Mtas dealer for Bulgaria, the final price for both is € 119.
Anybody know anything new about the situation in West Africa and Mauritania.
