From what I gather my plugs are not normal. Any advise how to remedy this. See photo. They were put in a couple weeks ago. Only put a couple miles on the bike. Wonder if it’s just not on the road enough Just mostly warming up in the garage to test things

Yep. Even driving slowly up your driveway after a good run can alter what the plugs look like.
To properly read the plugs you really should drive at a steady speed for at least a couple of miles, then simultaneously kill the engine and disengage the clutch, pull over immediately and examine the plugs right away. But if you keep low speed running and idling at a minimum you can usually get a good idea of what is going on.
