I always wear a fullface helmet with a dropdown shade screen. I don't even see the tank while I'm riding unless I were to bend my kneck and stare downwards. My lowest line of sight while riding is just beyond the eyebolt clamps holding the handlebars.Don't you find the chrome tank a pain with the sun behind you? My t140e has a chrome instrument binnacle (like a trident) and with the sun behind me it's annoying. Serves me right but bling was important back then.
Our band used to have mirror tinted windows and following it could be hazardous if the sun was wrong!
