Any ideas on what it could be?

The cornering thing I will have to pay attention to and see if that is having any effect. Thanks for the tip.

It might just be condensation in the exhaust, sometimes you'd be surprised how much can come out once it starts getting warm.
If its not condensation I think I've had the same thing happen on my EA81. I was just leaving the movies and let the choke rev the motor up to warm it up and suddenly a cloud of white smoke passes by me... I idled it down immediately and assumed the freshly installed headgasket was a failure, but to my suprise there was no more smoke. Even when revving it, still no smoke... just for that couple of seconds did it smoke and then nothing. And nothing since.
I chalked it up to condensation and old coolant that dripped in the exhaust from the HG job.
If its not that, it must be an emissions thing... I don't think HG's open up and seal themselves randomly like that.
