Try taking a spray bottle with vinegar in it and spray that area with it then rinse it off. See if that removes those deposits.

I'm thinking that the water collects in the head area when hosing it down, and drains where you see the deposits. The bike leaning to the left would make it drain to that side.

After a thorough wash, a run down the freeway blow water off and get home. Some water drips out of the oddest places :eek
