Sounds like a failing Bank Angle Sensor. It can be bypassed for testing to see if bike still quits on bumps, but I recommend replacement if bypassing it solves the problem.

Disconnect the BAS (remove seat, BAS is under trunk) and jumper the green wire to the red/white in the BAS connector to bypass it.

You can Delete/Remove the BAS, by By-passing it... I do this on all my bikes

It certainly sounds like the bank angle sensor, That problem was supposedly fixed by 1993 though. The fluid would leak out of sensing unit allowing pendulum inside to swing freely. Kind of like the tilt feature on old pinball machines. Dealers were replacing sensors that failed up to that point. Do the bypass tests to be sure that is the problem. Be a first for me to hear of that failure on a bike newer than 1994..

Jumped the red/white wire to green and that was the problem. It fixed it. Ordered a new angle sensor
