If you plan on going very far off the beaten path on your dual sport or adventure motorcycle, knowing how to deal with a punctured tire can be a critical skill to have.  This video shows how to change a tire in a shop with a tire stand to hold it in place.  Out on the trail you won’t have this luxury, however the principals and techniques are basically the same, and if you are on the trail you most likely will only need to replace the tube which is easier since you don’t have to remove the tire.  Of course doing this will require you to carry some extra tools such as a valve core tool and at least one or two tire spoons, and of course some type of compact hand pump to inflate the tire when you are done.
