Actually, it's not hard to learn. Start in really small steps, rocking back onto the rear wheel just as you add throttle and clutch, and when the wheel starts to rise, pull whichever way you want to go.

The more vertical the bike gets, the farther you can turn in one swing, but it even works on 950s in sand, even in really small steps. Each time you turn a little, the rear wheel gets new bite, so it's a great technique for getting unstuck.

You can practice it in your driveway even, the timing is the same even if the traction is a little bit better...
