Have you tried using the "Search Function" and looking? There's a lot of info here regarding that specific issue. The solution can range to overfilled oil, to simple service of the filter element, due to normal oil vapor recollection.

Which oil is best for leaking out my air filter?

It may be that the only purpose for your life is to serve as a warning to others.

Does it taste "Sweet", or "Bitter"?

Yes the bike is still under warranty and the dealer is telling me this is pretty much normal. I can't believe that Harley is trying to get away with telling customers this is normal..
