My white smoke situation

Hey all, I'm at a loss to my situaton. I was in an accident last summer, not a severe one, but my bike ended up upside down. I didn't hit hard, but I noticed some coolant that leaked out as I turned my bike over (from being upside down). It took a few hours to be able to start my bike, but once I did white/blueish smoke poured out. As I let it run over the days, the smoke stopped pouring out and only started coming out when gave some throttle. Now, several months later, I finished repairs and in idle, no smoke. When I drive it I get a trail of white smoke behind me.

No change in fluid levels, no quick overheating or overheating at all and no strange noises from the bike at all. I've read several similar posts but nothing helped for me. Is this bad news or should I keep running the bike to get this oil/colant out of this batch of fuel?

If I do that and there is, can I clean it out myself? Will i need new parts? Is that bad or can I fix it myself?

I've done the same thing, not a major issue.

ps, dont get this confused with starting your bike early in the morning and the condensation making smoke.
