Is it possible something was splashed up from the front onto the exhaust? Since you don't seem to have any leaks that would be a guess, but to clean it off you may need something pretty strong.

Was it hot out? Looks like a bit of road tar that they use to fix cracks in the pavement.

I would suggest a lot of paint thinner to get that off of there.

I noticed yesterday when I fired the bike up to go out. nothing else is splashed and it was sticky to the the touch this morning.

If it's road tar WD40 will take it off.

I had a plastic bag blow up and do the same on another bike, a real bugger to shift! I used a craft knife, thinners, then a Scotch bright pad to recover the finish.
