ZZR smells like gas

I have been told by workmates that my bike smells like gas when going slow in the parking lot. One said that it is running rich.
To me, it just has that "bike" smell.
I'm getting 54 mpg on 87 octane, making me believe that gas isn't shooting out the pipes.
Any ideas....comments...experience with this?

Thanks

57 mpg.. damn thats good. I only get 37 ish...

about the smell... you could always take it buy a trusted mechanic (oximoron? perhaps) to tell you whats going on. It's a 2003.. is it still under waranty?

Come on guys. The menu page says that there are 99 people browsing the board right now. Somebody has to have an idea.
I don't want to take it to a mechanic today because it's cold, raining, and I'm a big pussy.
