    I purchased a 2000 883 Sportster a week ago with 26k miles on it. I hauled it home, rode it 45 miles to show it off to my son-in-law, and as it sat parked in the driveway proceeded to leak probably 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of oil from what we believed was the overflow tube. I called the previous owner asking about it and the first thing he asked was if I dropped the bike. It hasn't happened again in the past week. Was this a case of the bike probably sitting awhile as I have read a little about? Thanks in advance. Mike
