2004 K1200GT leaking brake fluid

Hi Guys, maybe you can gimme some advice. My 2004 K1200GT is leaking brake fluid from the rear reservoir and its coming out somewhere on the left side of the bike. I'm not a moto techie, so I'm not sure what to look at first. The pipe coming from the reservoir to the left of the bike looks okay but after that I've got no clue. It is bad enough that the reservoir is emptied by the leak and it's all in one go. Please help.

The pipe that you describe is the brake fluid feed to the rear wheel circuit at the ABS unit.
Take off the seat and you can look straight down on the left to see it.

The pipe might have gotten a hole rubbed in it from the inner rear fender panel.
The hose in question can be seen in the photo on the left.

You have to do more research and clean the mess up before the brake fluid damages your paint.
