Not bike related - hmm, that broadens the field somewhat :roll:

I think we're going to need a clue. Unless it's Mrs FW's new crocodile handbag, I really have no idea.

Reminds me of the crud you see under mudguards. But as it's not bike related, is it the crud from the wheel arch on a car?

A clue, It's not something you would normally see on the surface. it is wet but it's not under the sea.
