brake fluid too high

What causes the brake fluid to get too high slowly over time and can I just remove some from the reservoir to get it back down?

thanks for the tips. Its above the line so I'm just gonna soak some out and take it to Motorcycles Unlimited for a brake service.

I was just curious why it got too full, I have never added any fluid (the bike only has about 3500 miles).

Brake Fluid is hydroscopic(sp?) IE it will absorb moisture from the air.
