smell gas fumes

I have a 2010 stock pipe and ac
When I ride and get home pull into garage
real strong smell of gas vapor I see no leaks
Is the bike running that rich from the factory?

I'm running V&H slip ons with a fuel pack and I notice the same thing. I don't know if it's typical, I'm new to the RG......mine is a 2007.

Yeah, my 2010 has a gas smell that lingers in the garage for quite a while. No clue why.

Is it all the time or on a full tank? I had gotten in the habit of fueling up before returning home from a ride. I would park the bike and it would start do the same thing. A friend told me that when you park the bike it warms up the tank and the gas expands and will push some out the vent tube. After that I always tried to bring it home with less than full.

Mine does the same thing after a long ride, park in the garage and you will smell fuel, no sure why either...

Hot engine under tank....gas fumes from tank vent. It's happened with every bike I've owned.

Yeah that does make sense, longrides. I'd add though that I've had over a dozen H-D's since 1976, and this is the first one I recall that smelled of gas after a ride....that didn't actually have a leak somewhere. Got a feeling you may be right, though.
