Take it out, have a good time. Crash a bit, replace things when they break, and don't worry about other's opinions. You'll know very quickly if the bike suits your needs. Check ebay for cheap parts if you want to upgrade, but get on good terms with a decent bike shop near you.

Tech tip of the day: Talc your tubes! I use Torelli's which come pre-talced, but last time I changed my tires, I coated the whole inside with a fine layer of J&J's finest baby powder. No more tube/tire friction. I can get them to speed faster, stop better, and they handle better too. Cheapest upgrade I know.
