Question Hissing Sound after Rain

I just returned home from work...
It was raining all the way and lot of traffic...

I see Vapors coming from the engine(GSXR 750) when waiting at signals and temps upto 222F.

Also, I could listen hissing(like a snake) sound coming from under the bike...
Is this common??
Should I be worried about this....

What would you suggest if I had to ride in rain???

Could have taken a rock to the radiator too. Let it cool and check fluid level

Maybe you ran over a water snake and it's up in your fairings?
That would make it hiss.

More than likely it's just the water on the engine and exhaust.

Or that snake svo was talking about.
