To the OP...i would ride around a field long enough to get the controls figured out, etc. After that, just go to some practice days. Just remember if you hear someone comin up on you, dont panic and try to get out of the way...just hold your line until they get by. Abrupt line changes, especially with someone flyin up next to ya, doesnt end well sometimes. Other then that, just go out there, have fun, if ya fall...oh well. We all fall at some point, some harder than others! Try to learn from the falls.
Do yourself a favor. Look up "checking sag", and the method to do this. I always recommend people make sure the suspension is right or at least close for them. It makes the bike handle the way it should. I learned this lesson myself when I hated a bike I had...re-spring, voila...i liked it a lot more. Point of that is, you will struggle enough out there early on....why put yourself at an immediate disadvantage with a bike thats not set up for you.
Finally, TRY to stay relaxed out there, and remember to use your legs (squeeeze). You will be amazed how tiring track riding is to your arms/upper body, when you fail to use your legs nearly enough. Not to mention, it gives you a lot more control of the bike.

Pretty much just don't push yourself too much, that's how you'll get hurt. Good luck!
