This stair climbing technique worked really well for us in Ecuador:
1 Start out by drinking some snake liquor (big jar of rotgut with real snakes in the bottom)
2 have dinner and a few
3 go to kareoke bar, have more
s, sing all the songs they have in english
4 share bottle of rum with locals at kareoke bar
5 repeat steps 3 and 4 until the proper mood is accomplished
6 get bikes from hotel and do wheelies around the plaza. This gained the approval of the locals and many thumbs-up.
7 find a good flight of stairs. you will be surprised what you can go up on an XR
8 approach in 1st gear, just into the "meat" of the powerband, blip the throttle to help the front wheel onto the 1st step
9 stand up, lean forward, and gently roll on more throttle. As with any hill climb, keep the clutch slipping a bit for max control. Continue to the top. A little extra speed will let you launch into the air for bonus points from the judges.
10 laugh till it hurts
This is not looked down upon in many countries. As I said, the few locals who saw us thought it was great and congratulated us the next day. In the USA, we would have been hanged. Relaxed attitudes are possibly the best part of travel.
