Just wash the tire off and take it easy on it for a while. Use plain water even though it'll be a bitch...and torque the drain plug to spec this time. :)

we used degreaser, is that ok?? and will you be at the .NEt meet?
Not ok, and yes.
Degreaser will do bad things to the rubber, so long as it isn't natural degreaser, but who the hell buys that ****? lol
Edit: Come to think of it, even natural degreaser would be bad.

New tire time.

why is it bad, the guys at the cycle shop that it would get the oil off?
Oh, it will get the oil off, but it will also destroy the rubber. It'll dissolve, become gummy and slippery, and do other bad things. It's like putting gasoline in a styrofoam cup.

It'll get the oil off along with the important components that make up your rear tire.

I'm kidding to some extent.

I used industrial degreaser on new car tires on a daily basis at my old job. It'd be smart to wash it off thoroughly.

WTF!! the whole nights been like this, so a new rear? and how long do i have?
Here's a simple equation to find out how much you have.

Take the number of miles ridden on degreased tire, add a - in front of it, and there you go.
Sad, but true.

Were you riding in the back of the pack? Its weird that no one would see oil draining out. Glad you pulled over though.

BTW, glad to hear that harley's are helping out and not all are douche's that everybody make them out to look like. Did you return the bolt to him? I can see it now, son wakes up, starts bike, and kapoof! haha

thats what i was thinking did you pay him for the plug? you just mentioned that the Harley guy went home and pulled the plug off his sons 07RR. what luck that the one person who stops his son rides a RR. we'll probably read another post on this forum saying "wtf my oil plug is missing"
