I have only taken the bike out twice. Both times it has been in the upper '40's. I have noticed white smoke both times at start up. I hope it is just condensation. White smoke can mean coolant or possibly a blown head gasket, but this is a new bike with 32 miles! Has anyone seen this? My other bikes are not doing this. Thanks :)

Lots of white smoke at first does equal condensation. Continuous white smoke the entire ride equals coolant problem. Coolant is easy to smell, too. You should be okay. Do your other bikes have a catalytic converter?

I have no idea if the other bikes have a catalytic converter. I could find out. I'll ask my husband if the smoke was continuous (he was behind me on another bike).)

Completely normal when it's warming up.

Hah. Okay. I guess this is common. You would think that my Harley or Honda Shadow would do this too but they don't. My husband said that it stops when we are riding.
