Guys, the milk in the sight glass is no cause for concern. I had this issue a couple years ago during the winter. Someone suggested leaving the oil plug off after you get it up to temp and park it, which worked after a few cycles - just remember to put your plug back in (I rested mine on the ignition bezel so I wouldn't forget and lose it).

Now, if your engine physically can't get up to working temp, can't help ya.

I second no cause for concern. However if that doesn't satisfy you, you might try a piece of cardboard over half the radiator. That'll get it up to temp better when riding in cold weather.
