Default '09 Vegas Gas Tank Vent Line?

Quick question after searching for the answer.

Occassionally, usually when the weather is hot, when I park my bike and come back to it I notice a small puddle of gas right in front of where the swingarm mates to the frame. When I say small, maybe the size of the bottom of a soda can. I notice there is a rubber hose that it is coming from and was wondering if this is a vent from the gas tank or what it could be?

Gas will expand when weather is hot there for it will run out the over flow.
In hot weather when your filling tank don't fill it so high.

Thats what I was thinking but just wanted to make sure. It does sit in the afternoon sun while I'm at work too.

Thanks,
