I checked my oil yesterday after 1hr of riding around in 1-2 gear and I had a lot of little bubbles on the top of the dipstick.
What's up with that??

How is your oil level? Honestly, I've never encountered this in my limited experience with dry sump motors, but in wet sump setups you get bubbles if you overfill it.

Is the oil milky or whitish at all?

No it's normal colour...with about 5 hrs use. It was a little over the full line on the dip stick (not screwed in) and the oil was real hot since I had been riding for about an hour so the amount didn't seem like an issue to me.
The bubles where about the size of a ball point pen or smaller.
