Default Rattle like noise coming from tank on new 2013 Highball

Hi guys,

I got a something that sounds like a rattle near/in the tank area. I can generally hear it at around 2200-2500 RPM. It doesn't sound like any normal engine related noise. I'm new to Cruisers but I rode a bunch of Victories and don't recall this specific type of rattling sound. Does anyone know what this is?

The weird thing is that when I fill the tank up with gas, the rattling is almost completely gone. When it's about half full the rattle is thier again like clockwork. My first service is coming up next week, but I thought I'd get some input on the issue that I can relay to my dealer if he is not able to hear it. It's not really that bad, but sounds out of place and is annoying.

Sounds like the weight of a full tank keeps it from rattling and then when it gets light enough; it rattles. Have you checked the bolts holding it on? Are they all there and tight?
