Much easier to let the bike dance around under you when you're standing.
When I was young,I was riding a tall Honda CR250 that was set up for motocross.I got bound up in some rocks and couldn't see because the bike was beating me to death.As soon as I learned to stand up and stay loose,it was a whole different ride.I could blast through there like it was flat ground.
