    Sorry to say but i need to see something more then turns and small jumps and bumps. I have surpassed that a long time ago.

    This is really good (and I typically hate video Instructables). In this case I can't see how you would just write the paragraphs without the video demo. I never put it all together before but these are the skills needed to ride a motorcycle down hills, too. Just to reinforce your big rule, keep your head up. As soon as you don't, anything can happen. Some of my friends used to think I was a nut for going so fast down hills. I was much better going down than going up (not enough power). As long as you keep your head up and keep the front wheel out of any washed out ruts, you might not even need to touch your brakes - although with a motorcycle you have engine braking to help ease you down. Very impressive Bikeskills.
