leak help

Coworker told me there was a small leak under the bike. I went to go check it out and it smelled like oil. So I got some napkins and cleaned parts and nothing. So I let it run for a couple of min and cleaned the bottom again and I got nothing. I drove it for a bit but I didn't get a chance to check it out. Any ideas of where I should check???

Had a similar experience after a hard ride once.......turns out it was chain lube melting off the front sprocket cover. Pull off the cover and see if there's a pile of dirt/grease under there
