1995 Virago 750 Oil check question

I had the oil light come on last night before a ride. When I shut the bike down to check it, the level was fine in the window. When I started it, the oil "dissapeared".

Question is, should the oill level be checked with the bike running, or not?

Do these bikes "use" oil?

I get NO smoke out of the pipes at all.

It has 8500 miles on it.

To my knowledge, the best way to check your engine oil level is to place your bike on the centrestand, so to keep the bike stright up, start then the bike, let the engine run for few minutes, stop the engine, check the oil window and if necessary add oil to appropriate level.
