Best of luck. I actually set my bike down when I was taking my exam. I aborted starting a maneuver because I was not lined up well, and knocked it over trying to do a low speed turn to get back to the start. I was all pissed, thinking that I had failed. But the examiner said I was not in the maneuver yet, so it didn't count. He also said I would have failed the maneuver if I had attempted it from my original angle, so I was right to abort it. Passed first try.
Funny thing was there was a guy on his Harley that went before me. He was your classic biker dude. Looked like he borrowed his kids helmet to take the test. Barely went down to his ears. He moved through the test on his chopper like it was a 125cc trail bike. I asked him why he was there! He obviously knew how to ride better than anyone that I had ever seen. Said he had been riding 30 years and finally got stopped by a cop... got a citation for no license, so he had to get one or pay the fine!
