    My suggestion is that the picture was taken as material for an advertisement for whatever the container in her right hand is pouring into the cap of the container in her left hand. The scan is not good enough to read the label on the container. Perhaps, in view of the front cylinder having had the spark plug removed, the product in the container is some kind of upper cylinder and valve lubricant which would be added into the combustion chamber?

    Bought this photo at a post card show. Posing or riding?

    The second photo on the lead item in this thread is of Dot Smith on a knucklehead. It is the cover picture of The American Motorcycle Girls 1900-1950 by AMCA member Chris Sommer Simmons which I can recommend. ISBN is 978-0-9817270-5-9. The only other book I know on the topic is The Woman, the Motorcycle and the Women's Fashion Trends 1894-1915 by AMCA member Aldo Carrer, also recommended, with ISBN 9788886955232, with many period black and white photos captioned in Italian, English and German.
