ah crap, you're right but a year is a long time not to have opened it up to serviced the BA. Depending on use and where it's used, I'd expect more regular maintenance which makes the grease easier to clean off with a rag.
I use white lithium grease on the car and only thought being exposed to the elements that it dries up and goes gooey. Time to get me a tube of Super Lube or the Ultra Slick. Will also try to source some Gunslick's Anhydrous Graphite lube
