I gotta get one of these for my next tour

I just found this for my next tour! My wife thinks they look despicable but I think she's reading too much into it.

On a tour of the English countryside:

"Excuse me, sir, may I search you bike bag?"

"Hello, hello, hello and what's this then??"

Kiwi protectors to compliment the banana guard? Sorry, I lifted that from something I read on a British site. (Google "Banana Guard" and you get over 300,000 hits)
