Additional functionality of a corsage
In February 2011, the temperatures in Europe climb higher and the ones who are riding on bicycles or motorbikes are preparing their vehicles for the coming season.
I ride on my bicycle the whole year through; only the motorbike is out of use on cold winter days.
On the motorbike, the kidney belt is a must. What you can see on this page isn't a kidney belt, but a corsage from the new underwear collection by the Austrian company p2.
Probably not very common, but I protect myself additionally to the kidney belt with a similar holder-'object' like on the photo. And when it's warm enough in the city, I wear the corsage solely, instead of the 'official' motorbike-belt under the shirt.
