Ideally, standing on the pegs, crouched/knees bent with your weight over the bars, elbows up and ON THE GAS while looking as far ahead as you can see.

Easier said than done unless you do it often enough.

I think he meant the downhill part. Or maybe not...

for really steep downhill stuff many guys do this technique

1. turn the bike off in first gear
2. use your clutch as your rear brake and use your front brake normally (use lots of front brake when the bike is straight up and not turning) if the front starts to slide when braking let up some.
3. CONTROL YOUR SPEED !!
4. look far ahead and pick your line way before you get there
5. some guys just lock the rear brake and then worry about the front brake for slowing down when its really steep

Again standing crouched/bent knees with your ass as far back as possible. Lots of rear brake and or engine off. First gear is to low and will skid vs roll the wheel. Front brake for control but don't lock the wheel or else. Look ahead to where you want to go. Let it roll.

Andy, We need some more Mendo time.

That's interesting about first gear... might need to go practice at Metcalf.
