My Harley doesn't leak a drop with 38,000 miles on the clock so far. But then, it's a 2001 model....and neither does my wife's 1989 Heritage. Go way back to AMF days and the damn things leaked like a sieve off the showroom floors.

But, the Harleys do weep at the gasket surfaces since changing to Harley's brand of synthetic oil. Thus, in my 930, I still use the old fashioned melted dinosaur juice and don't have any appreciable leaks. Too scared to try full synthetic for that reason.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
