Any reason why oil level might go up?

Recently had some issues with my bike which have since been fixed but during that time I was hyper-aware of every little thing and I noticed my oil level seemed kind of high, like to the top of the sight glass window or just above. I find this weird because I am always really careful in making sure to fill it right in the middle of the sight glass. It has been about a year or just over since I last changed it because i hardly rode last season, but when I did change it it was pretty black; no creamy color at all...

I suppose I could have just somehow overfilled and not noticed it until now, but is there any other cause of this magical oil level increase other than gasket issues?

Although I'm young I am still intelligent, wise, and intellectual....at certain times I just choose not to be...

Really though, anyone who mounts up on something that has as much horsepower as a Lotus and weighs as much as the average bloke from Wisconsin must be flipping bonkers...
