New use for old handlebar tape

After I installed my engine kill switch on my shifter I temporarily kept it in place with electrical tape. While deciding the real solution the tape turned in to a blob of goo after baking in the sun. I decided to use foam handle bar tape from a rode bike as the final solution. Doesn't react to heat. Absorbs palm sweat and has nice soft grip. Makes me want to ride my bike.
Next time I'll use black.

Meet the mummy

Cool idea, but...
Next time use black.

You are right! Neon Green would be so cool. I'll keep an eye out for some. Even orange would be fun.
