I'm new, but have spent a lot of time here. My 88 GL1500 did that,I hated parking lots and stop signs. Got so bad it liked to jumped out from under me.If this suggestion iscrazy I apologize, I lubed my throttle cables. WD 40, especialy on the one on the inside of the of the throttle. Make sure the cable pushes in whenyou roll on the throttle. Had to twist my cable 180 degrees to keep it from rolling out of it's fixture. Like riding a new bike.
That was a common problem on the early 1500's . Interesting fix.
