This is water vapor. When bike sits like that and there are temperature changes then moisture collects in the pipe and has to boil out. Happens with cars too, look at them on cold mornings. Your pipe is bigger and angled up, so more water can collect.
I have dual arrows and sometimes on cold morning I see this happening too (and I ride every day). Oil smell - that is rich mixture burning during warm-up mixing with fog from pipe.

Yes, Bohdan is correct.

If you still are worried, keep an eye on the oil level for a while. If the level shows no sign of dropping, the bike is OK.

My bike does the Fog Machine game every morning for about 5 minutes.

It bothers me because if there is THAT much moisture burning off, then i wonder how much was sitting, past the valves, inside my engine and intake mani.

I mean, its only like 4 feet from the exhaust tip to the engine on my mivv gp
