In this episode of 'Tuesday Tips,' Quinn Cody shows the proper way to turn your motorcycle around on a steep hill, aboard his Touratech equipped KTM 1190 Adventure.

While we could have created a Kickstarter campaign or put feelers out for sponsorship money, that just didn't feel right to us. This is our dream trip, an extended vacation if you will, so we didn't feel it was right to ask for anyone to pay for it but ourselves. As for ways to save up enough money for a 4-month trip, here are a few of the things we did:
A few years ago, some things happened that changed my life forever: I fell in love and married a girl who rode motorcycles, I left my career in aerospace and I got a job in the motorcycle industry. I've never been happier! My wife, Brayde and I make it a point to go on at least one ride a year and we've explored most of the Western United States, Canada, Northern Mexico, Baja and Europe in the last 4 years.
I ride a 2006 BMW R1200GS and Brayde rides a 2007 BMW F650GS. They're perfectly matched bikes for traveling together and this fall we’re going to finally take one of our dream rides: Seattle to Tierra del Fuego.
Our friend Helge Pedersen; author, adventure rider and founder of GlobeRiders Motorcycle Adventures, talks about about using inner tubes on tubeless tire wheels.
