Oily substance on front of bike        

Hey guys,

Sorry to bother everyone, but as I take my tank of to repaint it (It was leaking gasoline out of the cap, and it got all over the paint) (As well as the rest of my plastics) tomorrow, I am going to do some frame and motor cleaning. A couple of days ago when I replace the chain that fell off (clip came out), I noticed that there is a thick grease/oily looking substance all over the front part of the frame, under the plastics. It looks like dirty oil, but my bike is not leaking oil, and I haven't lost any oil (I check it often, and haven't had to add any to it). What could this be? It's really thick, and there's a lot of it, so I don't think it's 'just' road dirt, although in all honesty I have not cleaned the frame of the bike since the beginning of last season, and I haven't taken the best care of it this season (Left it out in the rain quite a few times this year, and I park it near a dirt driveway).

Anybody know?
