+1 to what Iceman said.
BTW, if it helps, I did almost exactly the same thing with a Triumph Tiger that I bought to sell a couple of months ago. I was dressing it up for the "for sale" pictures and used Armor-All on the tires. For some reason it never even occurred to me that this was a bad idea. I've always had dual sport bikes that I never cared what they looked like so I had never detailed a bike before. Well I almost dumped it leaving my neighborhood. Luckily for me I was going very slowly and was able to save it, but I learned very quickly that Armor All and motorcycle tires don't mix.
I realize that this doesn't help you tunaseed, but maybe it will take the sting away a little knowing that you're not the only one making bonehead decisions.
Take it from one bonehead to another, every one of us here has done something equally as goofy. You've just got the cajones to admit it and ask for help.
BTW, I'm pretty sure the alcohol will do the trick. The guy that I sold the Tiger to said that just regular old soap and water would work, but I never got around to trying it.
Good luck and ride safe.
