That might be right for twinshocks, now days it's throttle and clutch, you can do anything if you can control the clutch accurately. Watch videos, bunches on youtube as well.

I tried it this morning and it worked! I'm not saying I bunny hop like the video motojunky posted, but I am hopping over the log and unloading the rear as best I can…and the rear is not sliding across the log. Thank you!

The effort to unload goes a long way, log, rock or wet root. Rider input is what trials is all about!
