Default odd question

Ok the other day I was chillin having a water and fruit break, sitting in front of my bike. I noticed something odd. On the 2 lowest points of my windscreen, I saw 2 oil dropplets. I began to wonder where it could come from. I have inverted forks so the seals are well below where I saw the oil. My headlight is modern and oil filled lanterns haven't been used in decades. Speedo isnt filled with fluid. Where the hell did the oil come from?

Im baffled

Probably from someone in front of you. I would finish my break clean the windshield and go ride.

You've been following a Harlee?

Chances are, that's not oil from your bike. I wouldn't worry about it.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Might be a fork seal. The wind can whip droplets all over the place. If not that then maybe something in front of you...
