Anyone else experience this?

I just got back from a trip to Arkansas (1700 miles) and the next time I rode the bike, I start smelling a little bit of the exhaust gasses from the riding position. Never noticed this in the past, so I am wondering if I could have a leak somewhere. I've read that when there is a leak though, that you get popping on decel which I do not have at all. I will snug up the bolts on the header pipes tonight. Any other tips on finding where it might be leaking?

like I said on that other forum
look under rear heat shield up by header. Yes cut heatshield straps. Hardware store carries hose clamps.

Thanks John, I'll take a look under there when I mount my hitch. Maybe I'll just grab a set of Thrush mufflers while I'm at it too. ;-)
