Horizontally opposed cylinders..Bike on side stand...oil settles behind the rings on the low side...engine burns off the oil on startup.3 wings I've owned did this(it's common).Cured the problem...Shut off the bike when upright,center stand it right away(bit of a bother).Generally the smoking happens only after it sets on the side stand a few days,not just stopping for lunch.If it still smokes after this change,it may need head work,valve guide seals,etc.

Smoking of Bike after keeping on side stand overnight is normal for gold-wings...1500s and 1800s also do the same thing.Oil gets past the rings when kept on side stand..So just keep the bike on center stand for a night and just check next day..
