Battery blow out

Yesterday as I was ridding and came to stop my buddy noticed my battery blowing a stream of steam out of it. It was coming out of the top were there appeard to be a crack. What ever was happening to it took its toll and left us sitting. The battery is just a month old. Whats your guys opinion on this? Its almost like it was boiling over. Is the charging system over charging the battery and over heating it? Is the rough ride of the bike damaging it? I hate for this to happen to another battery.

Could be either if the batt isn't strapped in securely, along with the possibility of heat from the oil tank, or any combination of the three.

The battery wasnt secured the greatest but find it hard to believe it would get that hot from a little jarring around. Idk....
