Question some liquid out of the rubber hose

I went for a ride this morning 150 miles total. When I parked the bike in the garage I noticed that there was a small amount of fuel/oil liquid on the floor coming from one of the rubber hoses under the bike located behind the catalyc converter. Any idea what that is?

thanks for the info....i was thinking of another bike....the ol gas over fill line running under the tire.....my honda had that and i almost lost the bike because of the line being there...over fill and get gas on the tire...can get a good smoke show...i wonder why they put it there?....to me its not a safe place maybe more to the front and to the side would make more sense.....but thanks for the heads up
