The wheelie bars are certainly a challenge, but once I discovered that shifting my weight back just a little helped, it got easier. It's still hit or miss though, it took quite a few tries before I got comfortable enough to drop one hand!
I normally avoid shooting pictures in direct sun light, but this paint doesn't like the shade. I headed out to a nearby parking lot in the early afternoon and shot what may be my final pix today. I've still got a couple of more days to experiment, so I'm not committing just yet.
