Black dirty spots on front rim

I just bought a used 2008 triumph Daytona 675 with 12,400miles. I took it home and noticed black spots on my front rim. I figured it might have been from the road so I cleaned the rim. After a second ride the spots were there. What could this be from? I am assuming it has to do with the brakes. But not sure what part. I wrapped a zip tie to my front brake lever and throttle squeezing it. Going to leave it there overnight to see if any leaks from the brakes. I would hate to clean the rim after every ride.

get a microfiber towel and lightly spray with goo-gone, wipe the rims then clean with soap and water. This will remove any grease stains that are hard to remove. Then apply rim wax so that dirt and grime doesn't stick to the rim. See if that works.
Thanks! Rim wax is a good idea. Yesterday I grabbed a dry microfiber and wiped the dust off. Works well for a quick clean. Then I'll detail it and use rim wax on the weekend.
Rim wax is a great product, you could wipe your fingers with a white glove on my rims and wouldn't find any dirt, grease or grime :)
