Question Large number of gas tank paint chipps

My 2014 tank is heavily chipped. I have maybe 20 chips including a couple chips above the gas filler where I really never make contact with the tank. I didn't get to a couple of them with touch up paint in time so now I have light rust in a couple spots.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

I have a couple on mine. It's black. I find a Sharpie does wonders.

That's strange... Have you been doing much clay shooting near the bike or when sitting on it, or are you always covered with abrasive clay residue?

Pellets and targets are always moving away from the bike. I think it is something else.

I had a few chips in my 09 gas tank from rocks and gravel being thrown up by cars in front of me.
