don't get too worried about it.
it has sat a long time, and oil seeped into places it normally won't be.
sounds like you left it on the side stand?
if out of the fairing, it is water droplets from hoses that shrunk when they got cold.
as soon as the engine warms up, they will be just fine.....
but, you might want to open up the plastic and cinch down on the hose clamps...
I read very recently that removing a clamp, and taking the thread spacer out, and grinding off about 3/16th inch from its' length is helpful....
that spacer prevents you from over tightening the clamps and ruining the hose.
but, after 30 years, the hoses are getting a bit old.
