Is it cold out?

It's pretty darn chilly when you're riding, I'd say it's about 60 degrees out. I just rode out for lunch to eat about 10 miles there and 10 miles back and it was pretty much gone when I got back to work, but I've noticed it a few times. I just don't know if it's normal or not. I called my dealership and they said it's just moisture from it being cold and it goes away once it's ridden and at normal operating temperatures

Just condensation.

If you do a lot of short cold start rides it'll form an emulsion with the oil. Does no harm but looks messy.

60 degrees isn't chilly. Come and live over here. 10 mile trips with that temperature should be fine.

Don't think its too bad, my bike started getting that too
I think its just condensation from it being cold...i do a lot of short trips, which i think has to do with it
My friend also said it looked like a double glass and might be in between
