Question about 2005 BMW R 1200 CL
Blue smoke is probably oil smoke, as you figured. Now, how long did you run the bike once you got it fired up? Did you ride it? I'm wondering only because if you just fired it up, seen the smoke and didn't ride the bike, the oil smoke could have just been oil build-up in the cylinders from sitting and could clear up with a few miles. If you did ride it and the smoke persists, then you probably have worn rings/scored cylinders/leaking valve stem seals. That can be overlooked if it is not too bad, and you keep an eye on your oil level, like you're thinking. If your using a liter oil oil every 100 miles or something, then you might want to consider a rebuild if you plan on keeping the bike and sinking a bunch of money into it. It all depends on the severity and your personal comfort level with the situation.
