Product review: Gaffer tape

Gaffer tape, £5
Miles covered/time:
I get through a roll every few months.

What’s good? As everyone knows gaffer tape holds the world together. I use it predominately when I’m racing and it holds much of my R1 in place.

For my big biking trip I used it to protect the tank and tail unit of my Ducati from my tank bag and tail pack.

On my trip it also held my broken helmet side pod in place, and my sunglasses. My Jack Duckworth look went down a storm in the Ibiza clubs.

What’s not? It’s close to perfect, but after three and a bit weeks of 40-degree heat in southern Spain all the glue from the tape had stuck fast to the bodywork and it took copious amounts of GT85 and T-Cut to get it all off again.
