Mine has had that since day one. Do you do a lot of hard riding, high RPM's etc...?

Just stop checking your oil all the time. Problem solved

is your bike running hot? how is the coolant level?

hopefully its not a head gasket.

I just checked mine and I'm seeing the same thing, never noticed it before. I haven't had mine long enough to really notice it before but mine definetly has what you have. I would like to know what it means as well!

Specific to Deimos's questions above, my bike is not running hot based on my temp guage and my coolant is in good shape as well.

As long as the oil level is good and the bike isn't over heating then i wouldnt worry too much about it.
