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.
