Tracking down possible oil leak

Here's a pic of where I have seen oil.

The green circle shows where the spill over seemed to be on Saturday. I wiped the areas that could have oil seeping . . . did cold startup to warm engine. Turned off, and got gear on. Oil started to weep down. I wiped off, and rode a few miles to the store. Same thing. Both times no dripping on ground. Went to one more store and home. Each time just enough oil to see, but no substantial amount. Always from the same spot. Got home and have checked several times in the last 3 hours. Not oily at all.

Obviously, it's not a serious leak, but this may prove to be a nuisance leak.
Riding my airhead is like eating chinese food . . . an hour later, I need to ride again.
