    I would think Hockey anything would be a bonus in CA!

    Cut it off carefully with a blade so you don't score the handlebar, then use Goof Off or denatured alcohol to remove the adhesive.

    Exactly! That's what I always do! I'm a fool who put hockey tape on his handle bar. It's a lot cheaper than leather tape, it remains sticky for a while (I like that) and when it's not sticky anymore I put another layer of hockey tape. Then when there too much tape I cut it carefully with a blade so I don't score the handle bar (that part is not true, I really don't care that my handlebar is scored, it's covered by tape anyway) and I start all over again. With a 3.99$ roll of tape I'm good for about a year.
