Gas leak

Well, while i was walking to my bike after work i notice a small spot on the ground and it was gas. It was coming from some hose that appears to be attached to the tank from what i can see. it wasn't leaking in the morning before i left to work and i only work about 15 mins from home and i did fill the tank 2 days prior. any suggestions on why its leaking?

That would be the fuel tank overflow line. Nothing to worry about.

You just over filled it, I only ever fill up to the metal guard in the tank.

Did you fill it while sitting on the bike upright? I did that once and when i got home and chucked the stand on fuel started to drip out of the hose...what a waste of expensive fuel!
