I would do it, and I was planning on getting a bunch of riding photo's, but at the moment I can't ride, so it'll have to wait a few weeks. I'll try and get some hand rail shots.

Well, as a pre-emptive strike, here's a shot from yesterday afternoon. Same one as earlier in the month, but from a different (better?) angle.



I'd say that that's just a few degrees shy of 270, off an opposite hip. I actually did one to about 330 a few weeks ago, but that is not good on your wrists at all. Hurt like hell.
