2010 FE450 losing coolant

OK, I searched the other threads and didn't really find an answer.

It started just today. I warmed her up, went to the end of the driveway and smelled coolant. I looked down and noticed a splash out of the overflow. Odd, I thought. I figured maybe just a burp. So I went down the road to the gate, up and around and double checked. Coolant was now streaming out of the overflow. It wasn't overheating. The fan (yes I have one) wasn't running. I could touch the rads with bare hands and hold them. I popped the rad cap off(It seemed way too easy) and lots of milky foam was at the top. Odd, I thought. I started the bike, and the coolant rose, bubbled and went up and down with RPM. Odd, I thought.

So I turned around, went home and came here.

Prognosis gentlemen? Head gasket or loose rad cap or something else?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Oh, it still has tons of power, and no evidence of coolant in the oil.

+1 Headgasket. The pressure in the engine is higher than in your cooling system; oil mixes with water and is clutched into McDonalds mayonaise.
