Problem solved

Thanks for the notes!
I was in fact overfilling the tank. While trouble shooting this after reading the posts, I decided to not fill up, and leave it about ĺ. No issue.
Thanks for the advise. The canister was the problem all along when filling to the top; considering a Canirestomy or what ever itís called.

Canisterectomy

relatively easy procedure, you can find instructions if you do a search though it may be on a non-GS site, like for the roadster or RT.

ADV Rider has detailed instructions for doing the canisterectomy here.

After reading this, I went out and had a closer look at my '06. No canister. Checked manual, and apparently they were standard in all 50 states, so it would appear previous owner removed it. Interesting that the dealer had no trouble selling it to me with this supposedly mandatory emissions part missing... not that I am complaining...

Whizzy brakes, no FD drain plug, what's not to like?

I think only California cares about the charcoal canister. Every bike I've ever had if they came to me with a charcoal canister they left me without one.

If you over fill a tank ( or normal filling and let it sit with a hot motor or on hot day ), the excess fuel goes into the vapor recovery canister and into your engine making it very rich for a while. Vapor recovery systems usually handle vapor, but now it handling liquid and it runs into the engine. This happen pretty regularly on my Harley. If I fill it to the top and then immediately stop for lunch. The gas expands from the heat of the engine and up into the vent tube and into the vapor canister. Then after lunch I would start the bike and it would stall in the middle of the intersection. If I don't over fill the tank and/or fill up after a long road break, it never happens. Just a suggestion.
Fuel coming out of the ground is probably at 60 some odd degrees or so...And will expand as it warms.
