Absolutely go for it! It is the best way to "stretch her legs" and expand your skills to the next level. No better, safer way.


And don't worry too much about setting the bike up for track. Sure you'll need to think about tyre pressures, but you don't have to go out of your way getting different tyres (unless yours are done), and getting warmers and stuff like that. All you need is to take your time getting the bike (tyres / brakes / suspension / engine / etc.) to temperature, getting yourself familiar with the speed, and ENJOY yourself.
Ride to add life to your days, not days to your life.

Go for it pick one of the bigger tracks nice and wide so plenty of room, Snetterton in novice would be fine, theres a group of us who do uk and European trackdays ages range from 35-63 I have seen a lot older and faster than us .
