Some advice

I have owned many different motorcycles in my life. Mostly cruisers from the 80's and 90's. I have fallen in love with the 950 and the 990 adventure. I am almost ready to buy a '06 950, but have a few concerns.

First, on start up, there was a noticeable amount of blue smoke. Is this a normal thing? The owner assured me it wasn't a problem.
Second, the owner said he had it "uncocked" and the carb jetted. I understand what all of this means, but is it a good idea or perhaps its the cause of the smoke?
Lastly, it has 20k miles, I know thats not a lot, but what should I be concerned with at that many miles?

Thanks
