Marking her territory

My 2000 LT is starting to mark her territory in my garage. Maybe it's my son's Suzuki and Honda that has her concerned. In any case, she is leaking a bit of oil after each run. Not a lot, but probably a couple tablespoons full each time. It's not around the oil filter so must be further up where I can't see.

I'm trying to figure out whether to dig into it myself and give up before trying and take it into the dealer. Is this a common problem and where would you "guess" the oil leak might be? I have 82K on the bike now.

Cheers - Jack

Question Re: Marking her territory

Can you take some pictures?
It might be something easy, like a valve cover gasket...

And then she left me... She said I was never home!!!
