I think:

IF.....it did not overheat

AND.....it did not run low on oil

AND.....it wasn't ridden but a few miles after the smoke appeared


The odds of significant engine damage is slim.

And if the warranty does cover it, you should take whatever they offer you.

It is fortunate that you still have a warranty in effect.


Might want to talk about extending the warranty for another year as part of the "fix".

have not been ridden more than a couple times per year for the last five or six years.


The fuel tanks are close to full, and the gas does not smell fouled.

Regardless of how it looks or smells, 5 year old fuel HAS caused some damage most likely.


Given  your admitted lack of skill, I think you need help from a shop......including towing.


AND after they are running again, you need to SELL them so somebody can get some use and enjoyment out of them.
