Something For The Girls

From HERE

While this was addressed to lady bicyclists, it surely applies equally to women who ride motorcycles:

DON'TS FOR WOMEN RIDERS

Don't be a fright.
Don't faint on the road.
Don't wear a man's cap.
Don't wear tight garters.
Don't forget your toolbag
Don't attempt a "century."
Don't coast. It is dangerous.
Don't boast of your long rides.
Don't criticize people's "legs."
Don't wear loud hued leggings.
Don't cultivate a "bicycle face."
Don't refuse assistance up a hill.
Don't wear clothes that don't fit.
Don't neglect a "light's out" cry.
Don't wear jewelry while on a tour.
Don't race. Leave that to the scorchers.
Don't wear laced boots. They are tiresome.
Don't imagine everybody is looking at you.
Don't go to church in your bicycle costume.
Don't wear a garden party hat with bloomers.
Don't contest the right of way with cable cars.
Don't chew gum. Exercise your jaws in private.
Don't wear white kid gloves. Silk is the thing.
Don't ask, "What do you think of my bloomers?"
Don't use bicycle slang. Leave that to the boys.
Don't go out after dark without a male escort.
Don't without a needle, thread and thimble.
Don't try to have every article of your attire "match."
Don't let your golden hair be hanging down your back.
Don't allow dear little Fido to accompany you
Don't scratch a match on the seat of your bloomers.
Don't discuss bloomers with every man you know.
Don't appear in public until you have learned to ride well.
Don't overdo things. Let cycling be a recreation, not a labor.
Don't ignore the laws of the road because you are a woman.
Don't try to ride in your brother's clothes "to see how it feels."
Don't scream if you meet a cow. If she sees you first, she will run.
Don't cultivate everything that is up to date because you ride a wheel.
Don't emulate your brother's attitude if he rides parallel with the ground.
Don't undertake a long ride if you are not confident of performing it easily.
Don't appear to be up on "records" and "record smashing." That is sporty.

Are you paying attention Duchess, Kul Mom?

I'm hoping it will all be forgotten by the time roads are dry again in the spring.

You don't know women very well, do ye, mate?...






Note: that was "know", never to be confused with "understand".

Jack-
That's from 1895. Nowadays the question is, "What do you think of my thong?" Maybe HD can explain. I've heard about her dancing on the picnic table.

Unfortunately, the question is all to often, "What do you think of my man thong?"

Hey - didn't you read all the "do not's?" I'm obviously NOT supposed to talk about my bloomers, so that probably includes thongs. But I wasn't wearing a thong when I danced on the picnic table!

However, like those earlier-generation, brave and intrepid women, I wear short skirts with my bicycle shorts and jogging leggings, and if somebody tried to remove my skirt (without permission ) they would open up a big can of Granny Gone Wild Whoop-Ass and they would sure regret it!

Kul Mom - obviously AlcanRider has lost his "Handsome, Intelligent and Charming" adjectives and is just a plain old Geezer, with, as he admits, rudimentary skills.



It's -18 at my house and I'm getting ready for yet another day of backcountry skiing. Supposedly it's 3 degrees where we're skiing, and should warm up to 10 degrees. Yippeee!!! It's kind of ironic how single-digit temperatures can feel warm. We even saw the sun yesterday - which was nice! I'm making a crockpot full of soup that we can enjoy after skiing, to warm up our innards.

You say this like it's a clarification or an alternative usage for soup.

...and Jack, uh, I turned a couple of pages in that book you're looking at. There are some jim dandies in there. I'll be looking forward to your next informative post. Tell us about this next page.

Err... somehow I have gotten the distinct impression that the ladies on this forum are not exactly receptive to the admonitions from publications of that era so I will quietly retire from my short-lived role as advice columnist lest I find myself in greater peril.
