From the air. Not too uncommon in cold wet climates. As long as the oil looks good, and there's not a lot of the goo, it's probably just condensation.

TOo much oil in the engine can cause this aswell, along with flippng the bike over while running....personal experience climbing hills! haha!

how many hours on the bike? it can be blow by the piston, if the rings are worn, it blows by and builds up pressure in the crankcase and it has to come out the breather.
