Hey everyone! I'm new to riding as well as to the forum. I bought a 2001 vn800 last year and rode it only a few times. It was nice and clean, no oil leaks. This year I took it out of storage and shined it up, after putting about 60 km on I noticed a small oil leak. It appears to be coming from the bolts shown in the pics below. Has anyone seen this or have ideas on how to fix it? Thanks in advance!

Hard to trace leaks from pictures but my guess is the head or base gasket. Spray the engine with degreaser, wipe dry, and idle it for a few minutes. Just a suggestion. If it is the base gasket a retorque of the head bolts might stop it.
