Hard start

Started the beasty up this morning for a quick blat, noticed a strong gas smell and after a bit a hot smell like hot brakes on a train. Rode about 5 miles and stopped in at the dentist for a chat.
After about 20 mins or so the bike would turn over ok but not fire well , intermittent firing. So I gave it a couple of tries then let it rest for 5 mins.
It then fired up ok and rode well home.
It`s got me concerned.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

fouled plugs, old fuel, dirty fuel filter, possible pinched fuel line

5 mile ride is the problem. These bikes hate short runs and will foul plugs very quickly, especially if they do not reach full running temperature.
