Anyone have any tips to do a hang five, I can get the balancing part okay, but how should I get into the position and other tips.

Getting into it is far easier than balancing. Use your foot to scoop up the bike once your foot is on the peg you can also hop into it but thats a bit harder.

If I ride left foot forward, does my left foot go on the peg

I'm right foot forward and my left foot goes on the peg for hang fives, but I'm completely goofy footed. Hopefully you aren't?

I learned them goofy first and then learned them regular. I don't think it matters which way you learn them; I've always found them just as easy either way.

To get into one, if I'm not hopping in, I'll usually put my knee up against the bars beside the stem and use that to push in. I think it's easiest that way.
To hold one, I pick a spot ahead of me and keep looking at it until I get near it and then pick another one; it gives you a goal and it's a good way to figure out your balance.
