I did not see what year your bike is but there is a recall on the 2012 bikes for the voltage regulator which sounds like may well be your problem.
Also you need to check your battery cable connections.

Start with checking for any Diagnostic Trouble Codes.

As suggested check for codes. On my 08 I only had a problem with the stator and it needed to be replaced so I would lean toward a stator problem. I haven't had any problems with the voltage regulator yet, most of the time the voltage regulator is either good or bad but the stator can go bad a little at a time.

08 FLTR candy red sunglo, 103 Stage II, Woods TW-222 cams, V&H Dresser Duals with Monster Rounds, Thundermax tuner, Willy Shiny Wheels and Forks and a bunch of other stuff.

Could be a lot of things including the battery, loose/corroded cable(s), Bad VR and/or Stator. I doubt its the battery but you never know until you have it checked out. Any chance you have had the bike on a battery charger?

Check out post # 3 in the attached thread by tmd. It may be of some help finding your problem. If you don't have the Service and Electrical Diagnostic Manuals they will be the best $ spent for dealing with these type issues.

stator.

My '08 Street Glide did that. Turned out to be the voltage regulator. Good luck!
