175 miles and 4 states? Sheesh -- ride 175 miles in the southwest, and you barely clear one county...
Guess what? there is no oil cooler on the 2012 vstrom. Basically the oil filter housing is water cooled so I guess it's back to the drawing board.

The oil cooler is integrated into the radiator.

What's your coolant temp when riding? You could try blocking off part of the radiator and see if that helps with the milky oil, just keep a eye on the temp gauge.

The coolant temperature is pretty well regulated as it is always 3 bars (? temp) no matter what the conditions are and I have ridden in the teens to over 110 degrees.
