Thank you both for your answers; I really appreciate the advice.
@ KC, after running the bike Wed. night trying to trace the source of the smoke I noticed that there were no water spots on the floor, so I can only surmise that it was in fact condensation from the cold air earlier this month.
@ KC & Bronson, I looked at the connectors on the stator wires last night and, while they got fairly warm, they never started smoking. Incidentally, I couldn’t see smoke anywhere at all, even after riding into/around town and then back home, about a 6-mile round trip. It's just stopped. I wish I understood why so that my mind would be at ease (I’m paranoid and a cynic), but for the moment I’m not going to look the gift horse in the mouth. I’m just happy I can ride again.
I won’t say the issue has been resolved, because I do not know what was causing the smoke or why it suddenly stopped. So, I’m going to be keeping an eye on things to see if it does this again. If it does, it’s off to the shop for repair. If not, well, I guess I’m just lucky.
Thanks again for your input folks. I’m glad to be part of such a helpful community.
