baby's 1st oil leak

I suppose it's fortunate that it happened after I got home form my 2 week tour on the Brute instead of in the middle of the Nevada desert, but still, a bummer. Haven't been able to nail down exactly where it's coming from, somewhere behind and a little above the kick stand area. Drips down toward the oil drain plug. It started as some very minor seepage that I only noticed when cleaning the bike. I torqued down every bolt I could access and thought that may have taken care of it as I didn't notice any further leaking for almost a week, but now it's leaking enough that I've had to put a rag down when I park it. My first guess is an oil sump gasket, but I'll really have to take some stuff off to get a better look. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks, Michael
