engine coolant smell?

after about 10 or 15 minutes of riding i can smell the coolant when i stop. i check the driveway and the bike for leaks but can't find any. anyone know if this is normal? i had all the fluids changed sept of '08 so it's not old fluid, and the level isn't low.

Sounds like you got a leak somewhere and maybe its burning up.

hmmm. i'll get the techs to look at it when i get my spring check-up.

you know how you buy a bike from a dealer and they do the set-up before you drive it out? tightening anything loose, checking specs and fluids. i get that done every spring when good weather finally arrives. just a peace of mind thing, i guess.
