Can You Turn Your Ride Upside-Down?

I decided to screw with my cymbals today and found that when I flipped the ride over, it leaned a lot more but had a much better tone (IMO) than normal. Is it alright to play with an upside-down ride? Anyone else tried it?

Well, i don't think there's anything wrong with mounting it upside down, but how will you strike the bell?

This, the ride bell is crucial for applying distinct accents.
