In Houston, they call that 100 ft elevation change a highway overpass

Default High idle at low altitude

Searching for help on high idle on my XCT.
Just purchased a NEW 2014 Anniversary model (second one for me, first was bought used)
On the drive 300 mile drive home I noticed that I was having an intermittent problem with idle settling at about 1500 RPM.
I've got about 700 miles on it now and it is almost constant at 1500. Occasionally it will surprise me and come down to around 1000.
I'm in the Birmingham, AL area and this is my 6th Victory. Never had this problem before.
Any suggestions?
I've checked throttle cables.

Turn on the key, kill switch to run, don't touch the throttle.
Wait 15 seconds. Let it 'boot up'...
Start the bike.

Don't do 'bootupicus interruptus'... what's your hurry?

I've tried the "wait 15 seconds before hitting the start" several times, usually waiting a lot longer and no change. Still idles high as soon as the bike warms up.
I have figured out that if I force the RPMs down around normal idle (900-1000) by holding the brake while releasing the clutch, after I pull the clutch back in the idle stays down where it should be.
