Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC - FLSTCI Heritage Classic Motorcycles
It sounds like your battery is shorted. You need to take the battery to a shop and have it load tested. Harley's are not designed to run off the alternator like a car is.

Tips for a great answer:
If the battery is dead after starting then you have a short in the starting system. If it only starts when you jump it, and I'm assuming your using a car to do this, then it sounds like the starter is using an unusual amount of current to start and is defective. A shorted starter will drain a battery instantly, but make sure the positive cable is not shorted to the frame anywhere first.
