Bike acted strangely. Rode it about 15 miles hiway; it was fully warmed up. Stopped for a light and it was staying at 3000 rpm with no throttle. checkled the choke and it revved even more when I put the choke on. Had to wait about 5 minutes at the light and the engine got noticably hot, about mid scale on the temp gauge vs. normal just barely into the "normal" range. Engine also smelled hot.

Turned the engine off for about 30 seconds. Problem came back and then suddenly went away as mysteriously as it came.

fast idle and hot engine sounds like stuck timimg.. agree? Suggestions?

ps. bike also runs poorly below 3000 rpm but I was assuming it needed carb work I'd do this winter.
