The 08 is burning about 2 times that. I don't see any blue smoke during cold start. It is a pita though. Might take a look into her in a few months.
I'm beginning to think that modern motor oil doesn't really smoke much when it burns. I know when my valve seals went out on my V Strom I had no clue I was burning oil. No smoke at all, but it burned up 3 qts in 1K miles.
