Well I came outside and noticed that the tail light and license plate light were on. The bike was not on and the key was not in the bike. I started the bike and turned it off then the light turned off. Is there a reason the light was on? I am scared this will kill my battery.

Sounds like when you pulled your key out you went past "Lock" and had the key in the "Park" position which leaves your tail light lit up.

This happens to my bike as well when I lock the steering column.

I don't understand the need to have the light on when the bike is parked until the next ride. Even if you need to park the bike temporarily what would be the purpose of keeping the rear brake light on?

Does make much sense to me and the chances of draining your battery are pretty high.

In case you have to leave the bike parked on the side of the road at night...motorcycles have had this feature for 20 years.
