Small oil drip

I have noticed a small oil spot from the drip tube twice this past week. Is this normal?

I just bought the bike about 2 weeks ago. It only has 549 miles on it. Maybe the dealer or factory over oiled it? Thanks Bear.

There should be a plug at the end of airbox drain tube. Any oil and water should collect in the tube. Engine crankcase vents in bottom of airbox, right beside drain tube.

I am due an oil change in 50mi. I just checked and there is not a plug in my drain tube. I must have knocked it off with the side stand maybe, and that is why I am just now noticing the oil. Thanks guys.
