Dried fluorescent yellow residue on the bash plate?

Just curious; anyone have some fluorescent yellow residue (like something dried and left it behind) sitting on the topside of the bashplate. Like, where you'd expect oil or coolant to pool.

My wee is, admittedly, leaking a lot of fluids, but coolant isn't one of them as far as I know. The front oil cooler appears to be leaking, and I'm just getting the fork seals replaced after leaving puddles all around the GTA.

Doubt I'll be able to get pictures; shop has promised to give the bike its yearly wash, but yeah.

Coolant, check the hose clamps. Ideally back the clamps off a little and retighten. It's a fairly common problem.

Zombie guts or bug juice probably.

Fluorescent? Cool. Maybe it's alien squirt.
