You could get a Harley Davidson logo and put it on the bike.
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

More likely a bearing seal, the o ring prevents water from getting passed, by the looks of the drawing. water is blue, oil green.
The O ring groove is just forward of the weep hole.
