no oil in frame???????????

This brings us to my question. I haven't been able to ride for a week and a half due to weather. Does all of the oil drain down into the engine after the bike sits for a while?? I thought it stayed in the frame until the engine was running. Is this normal, or do I need to check something out?

The oil does drain down into the engine after the bike has been sitting a while.
yeah, on my Harley same thing happens if I let it sit for a couple months. There's a check ball that's supposed to stop it, but after long periods it ends up in the engine.
Problem is, when you start the bike it pukes tons of oil out the breather and through the air cleaner. What a mess.
