Can't tell for sure whether it's your oil, although it is black. What does it smell/feel/look like to you? If it is from your bike, you will see it near the source of the leak (side or underside of engine) - and you need an oil change. Oil on tires = bad things happen.
Good news is that oil isn't usually 'sticky'.

Thank you for the reply. It is very sticky.. i did smell it and it smells like the lube that i use. Been using Ipone decrassor to clean my chain and i put Ipone Sand chain to it. I lubed my chain yesterday. I think it's leaking from my kick stand and I sort of trace it up towards the chains and the gear -but it's kind of difficult to see as it is all covered up.

This is what I think it is, since its on the kickstand and tires. Look under your tail and see if it got flung underneath as well.

While you are at it, check your oil drain plug and filter. What you can do is put a rag under it overnight to see if it is in fact leaking.
