      What it is is what Z said, imperfections in the paint that give it a bimpy appearance. Wetsanding with 1500-2000 grit and then buffing the shine back up will give that "wet" look or "colored mirror" as I like to call it.
      BTW this is not something that I would recommend trying on your bike (or anything else) until you practice on another junk panel. It is extremely easy to wetsand thru the paint or to burn the clearcoat when buffing. Like everything else there are tricks to it. Learning the hardway can be very expensive. There is a reason that bodyshops charge $2-$400 to wetsand and buff a car. It's labor intensive and easy to FUBAR.
