I was told by a mechanic that if the overflow tank should be holed
by a rock, etc. that the bike would not overheat because water in
the radiator would not be effected.
I guess the only problem would be anti-freeze on the back
tire.
Maybe I'll get the belly pan.

TRUE.

However, as the engine cools it will suck air into the cooling system and when you restart mostly air would be expelled as the engine heats up. Notice I said 'mostly'. You'll probably lose a little antifreeze each cooling/heating cycle. The bottom line is to get the overflow tank repaired or replaced ASAP.

a/f tank

If your a/f tank ruptures and drops a quart of antifreeze on the back tire at speed you might have difficulty in controlling the outcome. A tulsa belly pan will ratify this situation.

TO RATIFY--OR NOT TO RATIFY--------

That is one of the questions. Who'll print it up? Who'll vote on it? Tullsa's employee's? :D :D :D
