What is this hose?

I just noticed this hose on my Wee, it goes to no where. Is it an emission or fuel filler relief? View from left side of bike, behind foot brake.

Left and right are determined from the rider's position on the bike. The foot brake is on the right side. I forget whether it's the drain from the fuel filler well or the overflow tube from the coolant reservoir. It does go somewhere on the other end so you can see whether it goes to the coolant bottle or the fuel tank.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

when I filled my gas tank up the other day I got a bit sloppy and overflowed the tank a bit, after wiping up the gas I took the bike off of the sidestand and when I did I noticed a substantial amount of liquid come out of a hose onto the ground...yep, it was gas......
