Black-and-white image of two figures on a motorcycle. The figure seated on the front of the motorcyle is a man, the figure seated behind him, closer to the left side of the image, is a woman. They are both wearing helmets, their heads are turned toward the viewer and gazing toward the bottom of the image. They are wearing dark jeans and jackets. There is a crowd of figures in the background. There is a thin white border around the image and inscriptions in the bottom left and right corners of the border.
