gas on sparkplugs?

Anyone tell me why I would have some gas soaked oil on my new sparkplugs after only a week. I have never seen this before. On a K1200RS.

Is that a new bike?

What bike/year/mileage?

Did you take out the plugs soon after starting? What's the gas mileage like? What's the oil consumption rate? Is there blue/black smoke when running? Are all plugs the same?

Has the bike done a decent number of miles past the run in period if new?

Well lets go back and remember :
was the bike running OK before the plug change?
how did the old plugs look when you took them out?
How many miles were on them?
what make and model were the plugs?
how many miles on them?
what was the gap?

The new plugs you put in:
What is the make and model of plug?
did you check the gap before you installed?
Why did you take the new plugs out to look at them?
was the bike not running good?
Are ALL the plugs wet? if no, what ones are wet?
what else did you do to the bike while you put new plugs in?
Had the bike been in storage for long? more than a month?

With this info we can narrow things down.
