strong smell

after riding for several hours, when i come home at the end of the ride, i usually top off the gas tank and leave my bike parked outdoors for about an hour, to let it cool off. then i park it in my garage which is very tight on space and not well ventilated. the fumes coming off my bike are strong and it basically makes the garage uninhabitable for the next 12 hours. i can even smell it in the kitchen sometimes and it's the strong of gas fumes, etc. thoughts? i cannot leave my garage door cracked, too many critters.

i never overfill my gas tank but that gas station is only a couple miles from home.

Is there any way to safely plug the exhaust when it's stationary? Not sure if it would help, but maybe worth a shot?

Whenever I bring any of my bikes inside, the place smells like fuel in 10 min. Most of the fumes seem to come from the gas cap since it vents. I don't have much of a problem with fumes in my garage, I guess my garage door doesn't seal very well. Covering the gas cap with something helped me in the past.

removing charcoal canister might help a bit.

I find the seal on my cap does not seal very well it's the seal between the cap and the tank .When braking if the fuel tank is full the fuel leaks out the from of the cap .
Your bike might be going the same it is something not visible while riding

Put an exhaust fan on the ceiling of the garage, or high on a wall over the bikes and cars.

Try not filling it before getting home and see if it makes a difference. I've never noticed this with mine.
