So last night after riding home, I noticed a very small amount of oil on the right side of the bike (02 883 sportster). Mentioned it on a sportster facebook page, and someone said to check for oil on the bottom and behind the air cleaner. Sure enough there was oil, as well as a small amount inside the filter box itself.
HD routes the oil back into the throttle body inside the air cleaner because of EPA restrictions. A buddy of mine bought a used 2013 Street Glide and his filter was saturated. We ran a external breather from DKCustomproducts and that fixed the issue.
People are why I love Dogs and my Harley.

If there are no other problems, only a small oil film will coat the inside of filter, and sooner or later, if not cleaned, will drip out. Make sure to never overfill the oil, make sure filter is clean, make sure the crankcase vent is clear.
