What is this coming from the breather hose?

What is that? I noticed it today, the bike's been standing still for a couple of days. It feels oily.

I've seen this once before, but then it was white (condensation + oil as I understand). This time it MAY have been white and then the water might have evaporated, not sure.

Should I be worried?

Been riding in water or a wet trail/track lately? Just a bit of water emulsified with engine oil from the breather, I personally wouldn't be stressing about it. If it was me I would remove the breather pipe, clean it out internally and reinstall .

I've been riding in snow. Okay, that's what I hoped it was! The oil in the engine looks perfectly healthy, so I doubt that it's coolant mixed.
