Hello Pisces, I am currently taking class 2b as well at 31 yrs old.
wow this forum is pretty much dead. I just read the old post to get some tips on how to improve on the areas i suck at.
For plank what works for me is to throttle with enough speed so that it doesn't feel wobbly and get the bike up the plank first. Once I am sure the whole bike is on the plank I will close throttle slightly and step on and off on the rear brake. Sometimes I will open throttle slightly because I feel it's too slow and I might fall off. But I think most people use maintain throttle method and just step on rear brake? Depends on what works for u.
but the basic uMUST do
1. look far
2. Kiap your leg to tank like your life depends on it.
3. use handle bar to balance
Last time when I thought I was going to fall off the plank, my mind just gave up and I will direct my bike to fall off the plank without even trying to balance it by steering the handle bar. Maybe I was scared of dropping the bike. But then something click and I realize there is more than enough allowance on the plank for me to balance it by steering the handle bar. Once u get it ,it's like swimming/cycling, u cannot unlearn it.
But for your case if you just drop off once u go up then maybe you should just focus on going up and down the plank without falling off the plank first without thinking about the time. Once you get use to it then start improving on staying longer on the plank.
BTW I took 3 lessons to pass but it doesn't matter because I did learn something.
