Seems like a drive train thing, then? Does it do it in any gear?

Well, drive train issues should be evident in any gear and pretty much any speed. So, my first guess would be tires. How's the pressure?

Others should be along soon with other opinions.

Could it be a front bearing making noise when the load changes from deceleration? Could also be the front tire if it is cupped just right.

When your on the throttle there is a constant load on your drive line. Pulling in the clutch takes the load off & allows the parts of the drive line to float & the joints get some free play. 5th gear & over 50 suggests that 5th gear might have some play that might be excessive. If this is not the case, how long has it been sense you had the rear tire off for replacement? When it was off were the drive gears coated with Molly 50 paste as a lubricant? When you put the bike on the center stand, get the rear wheel up off the ground & double check it for excessive play side to side just for safety.

On the 1000 and 1100 the drive shaft needs to be pulled every few years and the splines greased at both ends. As Hatchet says, the splines on the wheel should be cleaned and greased. The correct grease for the 1100 is Moly 60. When I took my 1100 apart the drive shaft rear spline was nearly worn through. I have heard stories of the splines completely failing and the dirve disconnecting the engine from the wheel. The 1200 FSM says Moly 50, I doubt is there is much difference. If the local Honda motorcycle shop doesn't have it, try Honda Marine.
