Default ETC Forced Idle Mode

I own an 08 Street Glide and on ocassion I come to a stop light and the bike will idle at 1500 to 1800 RPM's.&nbsp\\; If I turn the throttle back as far as it will go it idles back down to normal. But I cant let go of the throttle to the idle position, she'll idle back up again. This only seems to happen once in a while.
&nbsp\\; I saw in my owners manual on page 40 a quick paragraph that only explains:

&nbsp\\; ETC Forced Idle Mode " The throttle plate actuator is forced to a "fast idle" position, which will provide enough torque to crawl, but not enough to operate at traffic speeds."

WTF?
&nbsp\\;
It says nothing about how to engage or disengage this mode. Assuming of course this is whats happening????

Any input would be appreciated.

Mike
