Is there something wrong with the rings or something to cause the smoke in the second picture?

Could be the onset of an early icy Polish winter and newly started engine not yet come up to temperature.

Shades of Gandalf, it's not every Silverwing that can blow smoke rings...

I guess I've been living in Florida to long I completely forgot about that cold thing. Embarassed  Not meaning it don't get cold here, heck it got down to 73F last night. Come February we may even see 30s at night. Hey I just realized there's no degreas key on my keyboard.

If you have an iPad or iPhone press 0 and leave your finger on the key and the degree symbol ° appears above it. So drag your finger onto it and it will appear on the screen, for example 71°  Smile

Thanks guys . It was a chilly morning and cold engine. That part of Poland looks very  much like central Pennsylvania. Pictures are from July. I do own a home in northern Poland, about 35 miles from Gdańsk. This morning temp. 32 °F ( thanks Meldrew for °) I have a way to keep warm .

More pictures from July and some from October last year.



And this is sun energy stored for a winter :

Or if you use Windoze you can get 71º by a much more convoluted route :
Start
All Programs
Accessories
System Tools
Character Map
First row,seventh down click on it,then :
Select
Copy
& finally paste it into your post .... º

Ahhhh,the legacy joys of Windoze 3 :lol!:

69° here now in East Texas at 5:01pm. Just had to try out the degree thingy. Thanks for the iPad tip. Poland looks like a very beautiful country and a super place to ride.

Or hold down the Alt key and enter 0186 using the Numbers keys at the side; using the number keys at the top doesn't work.

73º

Doing the same but typing 0233 gives é, handy for words such as café.

0189 gives ½.

I have a list!

John you live in a beautiful part of Poland. I think I will just spell out degrees, I don't have an iPad or iPhone or a numbers keys at the side and the way The Bern gave is so in depth that I don't think I can remember all that.

PS
The Bern I figured out how to pin the Character Map to my taskbar so I can remember how to use your method. Look out who knows what I may learn next. º » ¾ ¼ ë ^ ø
Thank everyone for the typing lessons.
