Some of the sidewall came off and now there's two eraser sized nubbs sticking out. I noticed it yesterday after work. http://www.gixxer.com/forums/images/graemlins/plthumbsdown.gif

Thats where a part of the tire mold has an insert for the manufacturing date. Excess rubber oozes around those seams in the mold cavity and creates "flash" that often sticks back to the tire carcass when it's hot out of the mold. You're not seeing anything out of the ordinary there. You just never paid any attention to it before.
Oh yeah... clean your bike!

Thanks guys, I was about to have a new tire mounted. This tire still has a little life so much appreciated guys http://www.gixxer.com/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif
As for cleaning my bike...I'm a little lazy sometimes. I'll see if I can work it in between beers this weekend.
