Default winterize

I did bought a VFR-750F 83 from a guy who was doing just that, ie (run the bike a few minutes once in a while) when I got to finally buy it and get it home. I started to give it a good once over checking everything, when I got to the engine oil, it came out as a creamy whitish goo. Just like when water is mixed with oil. So, unless you run the bike long enough so that all humidity is burned...witch would take like 30 mins or so. Better leave it has it is. Take care of the battery... that's about it.
