Strange sound

Hi! Everybody. When my 2012 Goldwing is warm,and I start it at idle there's a light knock from the engine for about 5 or 6 seconds. Then it's fine. Anyone noticed this before? Thanks again.

Mine is not a 2012, but it has the same engine, and yes, I notice a bit of a thump till the oil gets circulated. It does not take long.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Any chance of capturing the noise on a smart phone and post it to youtube and then put the link here so that we can hear it ???
