Relax and breathe. Focus on the task, but don't over think it. As an MSF coach, when we give the riding skills evals, I tell the students. It seems to help.

Good luck, easy on the brake and the throttle. Keep your feet up.

Listen to the evaluator carefully and follow his instructions. A big one people miss is during the emergency braking part.

The instructor will tell you to use both front and rear brakes during the braking. People use only the front and fail because the exercise is to use both. It doesn't matter how quick the stop.

Listen to the evaluator carefully and follow his instructions.
This is important with any non-written test. If you don't hear exactly what they want you to do....or it's not clear...., just ask.

It shouldn't be too bad, man. Eat a good breakfast, keep your feet up, and roll with it.
The hardest part of the test I took was the figure 8 box. Take it real slow, feather the clutch, and counter your weight. No worries.
