Gas dripping from overflow hose?

4248 23
As the title suggests I have a little gas dripping from the overflow hose under the fairing. Anyone have any thoughts as to cause? Something to worry about or not.

It has less then a half tank in it and it was sitting for a while before it happened. It has been rather warm here but with less then half a tank of fuel I am wondering what might be causing it.

I had that happen once.

It was due to over-filling the tank (past the filler neck) and some of the gas got into the line. But, it didn't flow out until I parked on an uneven surface and the bike was leaning slightly backwards.

Once it all flowed out, it never happened again.

The overflow line must not be straight down, or partially clogged.
