Drip? help!

Gals and Gents,

I fired up my bike after being parked for about two weeks. With the Chicago bitter cold, I do this, roll the bike forward so the tires don't sit on the same spot for the duration of it's water hibernation, and notice this drip that came right below the underbelly.

it looks clear, no smell, doesn't look like oil or gas. Is it water? Is it coolant? Should I be worried? Buy a new bike? what? Please help identify and help me ease my worried mind. Thanks in advance!

its right below your overflow pipes. could be water or even condensation.

I second the overflow hose condensation theory.

i agree with the other guy's, probably just condensation, i would not worry, just keep your eyes on it when you start riding again.

The exhaust will also drip condensation during warm-up, normal.

That is plasma discharge from our flux capacitors... Get rid of the bike as fast as possible and get a new one, I will gladly take that troubled bike off your hands for a few hundred buck that way we both come out on top

Unless life also hands you sugar and water your lemonade is going to suck
