Lot of oil smoke when cold started the engine like always

Hi, mates!
As always, I rode my beloved bike all the way to my office.
As always, before living home, I have started the engine with the choke set to the level which maintain 3.000rpm, as the manual says, until the engine gains 1 line in the temp scale.
As always, meanwhile I put may garment on.
As never before... my bike started to produce that smelly grey oily smoke we all know someday must happen... but not with 45.000Kms on the clock...

I immediately released the choke, despite I was sure the smoke will keep going out of the exhaust, but... actually it stop. Then I put the engine @4.000rpm and no smoke. Then I put it @5.500rpm, this time riding to my office, and nothing!

What the heck is going on??? I know must be a reasonable explanation, and I hope it's not a severe damage...

What do you think, guys?
Thanks in advance for your help...
