Shiny Tripletree Top

I know the sun shines in Germany and I know it shines in Bavaria. I've actually seen it happen. So... why did BMW make the tripletree top they way they did??? What is the deal with the shiny top to the tripletrees?!? I've only put a few hundred miles on the Red Flash in the week we've been together and already my eyeballs are being seared by sunlight reflecting off that brushed flat surface. Is there any sort of spiffy "carbon fiber look" cover for the darn thing? Please don't tell me my best friend is a Krylon rattle can...

Not all who wander are lost. Which still leaves room for more than a few lost wanderers...

I usually get the sun reflection from the gauges. I wouldn't suggest Krylon for those.

Ooooh! You da man! TNX!

Oddly, the gauges haven't posed a reflection problem. So far.
