i took off the tanks and see the oil sender leak is gone now bone dry but the highest point of wetness is at the base gasket on the left rear cyl

I swear mine looks just like dee-gees but the base gasket on the cyl looks wetter , so why take pics

this is strange
can tbelieve that much oil could come out of the cylinder base gasket
nothing all
where the hell is all that oil coming from that leaks onto the ground when I come down from high speed ?
I can run down to the store and not a drop

it's not the valve covers
not the heads
not the main cases
not the oil pressure sender
not the neutral light switch
not the oil tank breathers
not the check ball screen on the oil tank or the suction tube
and not the crankcase breather either
not the drain plug
not the oil screen
not the oil filter cover

can the alternator cover or the base gasket on the left rear leak that much ?
i mean a puddle about 3" (75mm) DIA
from a cloud of dust we race, then into the dust we return, across the finish line
