Here's how to sit on a dirt bike: Don't sit too far back on the bike or you'll pop a wheelie accidentally. Sit forward on the bike. Squeeze the bike with your knees. All your weight shouldn't be on your butt. Put out your elbows away from the body and high up in the air.
Position the foot pegs in the middle of your feet for good control of the foot levers. Grip the bike with your knees slightly bent near the bottom of the tank. Your back should be slightly arched. Try and keep either 1 or 2 fingers on the clutch and brake levers as much as possible.
