Default stupid oil check ?

when checking oil level is the dipstick[not me] screwed in
or just set on the motor. on my hondas it was just set on
and the owners manual doesnt say for sure. i have an 11
crossroads. thanks!--irv

later edit
gee--in small letters on the stick it says tighten to
check oil. i was hoping someone else could tell me that.
i know, you were too busy laughing at me.

I have a 2010, page 87 of the owners manual states:
Quote:
5. Remove the oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe it clean. Reinstall the dipstick and turn the cap clockwise until it seats.
6. Remove the dipstick and view the oil level.
Later edit, I'm sure no one was laughing at you...much

1. Place the transmission in neutral. Start the
engine and allow it to idle for several minutes.
2. Stop the engine and wait 3-5 minutes
before checking the oil level.
3. On level ground, straddle the motorcycle and bring it to the fully upright position.
4. Remove the oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe it clean. Reinstall the dipstick and turn the cap
clockwise until it seats.
5. Remove the dipstick and view the oil level. Add or remove oil as needed to bring the
level into safe operating range (between the FULL and ADD marks) on the dipstick.
6. Repeat steps 1 and 2 each time you adjust the oil level.

Fuel Level
1. On level ground, straddle the motorcycle and bring it to the fully upright position.
2. Start the engine. The low fuel indicator light will stay on if the fuel tank level is less than
one gallon (3.8 l).
3. Add fuel as needed.

Tire Pressure
1. Check tire pressure before riding,
when the tires are cold. This will provide
the most accurate reading, as riding
warms the tires and increases tire
air pressure.
2. Adjust tire pressure as needed based
on the total weight of your intended
load. Refer to the tire pressure table.
See page 61

Glad you figured tis out Irv. Just as added info. I have been checking my Vic's for over 50,000 total miles and have never, ever, never had to add any oil.
But I still check. Go figure
