Left at the beginning of December and didn't have the chance to winterize the bike... opened up the garage a couple of days ago and noticed an oil leak under my 2001 Triumph Bonneville.. I figured it was some extra oil leakage from the air intake.. but then I saw a little hose with one end clamped sealed... I've attached a pic.. does anybody know what this is? and what leaked from it.. oil or gas?!

Welcome to the forum robholowka!

You can ask that question over the the Air Cooled Twin Technical Talk forum at http://www.triumphrat.net/air-cooled-twins-technical-talk/. The tube attaches to the bottom of your airbox and is there to collect excess oil that was deposited there from the engine breather tube. For a 2001 it's not surprising it filled up if you've never emptied it, but the guys in the tech talk forum might have additional input.
