Where did the Extra oil come from?

I just dusted it off and fired it right up this Friday.
I rode it around for 5 minutes.
I pulled the dip stick on the top of the frame (with the engine off).
Oil spewed/gushed out!
Where do you think the extra oil came from?

Also being a sump type oil resovoir you may have just warmed the bike up too much prior to checking it. I did the same thing and found that if I warm up the motor while leaving it parked on a level place, warm it up for 3 minutes, per the manual, shut it off and wait 20 seconds I will get an accurate reading . If I run the bike through the gears, I find that it will spit oil as you have had happen. just my 2 cents
