An advertisement that incorporates a drawing of a motorcyclist depicted as if he is riding out of the promotion and towards the viewer. He wears goggles and his clothing appears to be of thick material that is very securely fastened over his chest. The advertisement's main caption includes: 'This record performance has just been registered on Victorian roads by P.J.O'Brien, who added over 50 miles to the previous best figures'. In one day in early March 1913, the Melbourne motorcyclist O'Brien rode his 3 1/2 h.p. "Rover" 679 miles on a round trip to Camperdown via Mortlake and Lismore.
