Gas smell?

Picked up my new 2008 Versys today. Rode about 60 miles, and made 4 stops. I noticed a strong gas smell the first three times. Seems to have gone away. Any ideas what it could have been? I looked and couldn't see anything damp. I thought maybe the dealer had filled the tank, and when I put it on the side stand, something vented. Sound reasonable?

i smell gas at stop lights sometimes. my z1000 would do it to, but not my Suzuki's. i just thought the engine heat was heating the tank and then venting. i hope i am not running that rich.

It seams to have stopped after 300 miles on the bike. I haven't smelled it sense.
