Is this a normal amount of residue? GL1500 Valkyrie

Hi guys,

I do regular maintenance (the easy stuff) on my bike/s, and have recently done an oil change where there was nothing worth noting from the breather overflow hose on the rhs of the motor. I have drained fluid from here previously with the inclusion of some milky residue. Having just done a round trip of some 1100 km's say 700 miles - all of it at highway speeds of between 100 to 120 km/h in most situations and roughly the same amount of fluid residue has been there again - is this abnormal or just considered average. Photo attached for reference.

looks about right to me. I had a 02 Valk I bought new and roar until 2013 after a crash when I sold after.
