Welcome to the oil using 1100 club. On my Sabre there is no sign of any leak and no exhaust smoke, but on occasion it can eat a quart of oil in 800 miles. Some of the things that aggravate oil usage are: high speed, high altitude, restricted breather tube, and perhaps running lean. I have nearly 60k on my bike, but this has been going on for years.

I am guessing that the valve seals are shot, especially the seals on the exhaust valves.
