Well all’s sorted re your place now Zander - phoned up the Yamaha School and you’re in Looking forward to it. Not been on one since 2008. Not sure about biking down though, as last time I was aching all over and extremely muddy and wet after falling off in the rain many times. Might get a pillion ride though if anyone’s going down or go in the car
I was kind of on a high for days after last time - it was SUCH FUN:D:D
I’m 5 foot 5, so I suppose that’s only a few inches taller Plus 5 foot one is not too vertically challenged for moto riding. There was a girl called Mini Moto from the KTM forum who was under 5 foot, rode a KTM, went off roading and track daying etc - so you’ll be fine. They have lowered seat bikes for shorter folks also.
It’s all covered under the insurance (included in the price). As for dropping the bike, I binned mine at least four times - falling off is par for the course - but because it’s muddy and a dirt track it doesn’t hurt.
