Question for all 1199R owners?

I know I might sound like a noob, but I need some answers!

I've been very interested in the 1199R, once I saw the aluminum tank, I thought "Won't sunlight reflect off of that?" So I want to ask all 1199R owners, when you ride and its really bright and sunny outside, do the light reflect of the tank? If so , is it enough to distract you while riding?

Thanks!

If this is a serious question...don't worry about it. It is brushed aluminum not polished

You will be ridding in a tucked position so you can not see the reflection it makes.

I'd guess that if you are in a seating position for a reflection...any reflection from the tank to be a problem...your probably not going to be n the road very long.

When I first saw those mufflers on the Pani, I wondered, will those make any noise?

All Pani tanks are made of Aluminum...just that the "R" has some Brushed Aluminum portions exposed...then, the aluminum portions are painted with a clear coat of matte paint. No reflecting whatsoever.
