'08 rear master brake cylinder location?

I'm having a hard time finding the rear master cylinder. I'm bleeding the brakes and want to check the level but dang... where is it? LOL

Thanks in advance.

OK, found it after Googling for 15 minutes. Front/right side of engine frame (circled in red)

That's not a bad idea! Was it a difficult mod?

So, why is the cylinder covered? You have to take off the metal shield to check the level. I guess it's to prevent damage but dang... couldn't the engineers just talk to Sick Mick and put the reservoir in the back like it should be?!
