This is the infamous starter relay problem on older model LTs. IIRC, if the battery voltage gets low enough the bike will attempt to start but what happens is the starter relay welds itself together, which then causes the starter to run until the battery is flat or you pull the battery connection. They updated the relay a few years back to currect this problem, and it may be covered under a service bulletin. If so the dealer may replace it for free, otherwise you'll need to either pay him to replace it or do it yourself.
