An attractive addition to the already comprehensive catalog of the Wilson Weather Coat Company, of Aurora, Ill., is a divided skirt intended for use by women riders of the motorcycle.  The skirt is suitable for either walking or riding, as it may be buttoned down the front and transformed into a garment of the ordinary pattern without difficulty.  When it is to be worn on a motorcycle the front panel is unbuttoned at the left side and folded over and buttoned down the right side, or removed entirely.  Worn with Norfolk jacket and cap and leggings of the skirt material the new garment completes a riding habit which is serviceable as well as comfortable and attractive.  – Source:  American Bicyclist and Motorcyclist.  Feb. 23, 1911.  – Ride Safe and Enjoy the Road.  Vrumblesramblingbikerblog.wordpress.com
