Unhappy Finaly rear dive oil

SO I did a bad thing I think. Need advice!!!
Changed the final gear oil on my '14 FJR1300.
Everything went well until I came back from a test ride and without realizing it,
rode straight though the oil that I spilled topping it off.
Will it eat up my tires as I fear?

No, wipe it clean & you’ll be fine. Tires are made of many things including oil. Just clean it off well so you don’t slip on it.

Rinse it off with isopropanol. Keep a bunch of that on hand, it's a pretty universal solvent that won't harm anything. Finish with soap and water if you like. It easily mixes with water.

Dish detergent such as Palmolive and Dawn work great. Only takes a little, plus a lot of water.

Barber Motorsports Park buys Dawn in bulk to treat oil spills on the track.

Go with Palmolive as it will also soften your hands - you're soaking in it. https://youtu.be/dzmTtusvjR4

Wet polished concrete is slick. A friend fought contractors until they agreed to polish his concrete driveway on new house. A proper redneck, he enjoyed the ease of spinning tires in his tall truck with mudders .... until he bought a Goldwing. I never knew of him dropping the Goldwing, and he didn't rough up the driveway either.
