Suggest you pull the choke out of the carb and inspect/clean. Sometimes they get gummy or the spring poops out. You could also have a sticky float that unsticks when the bike moves.

On all five Hondas we have owned, there is a 'no mans land' during warm up when you keep pushing in the choke to reduce rpm, and you finally push it in and the bike suddenly doesn't want to run at all. Have found a hand on the throttle keeps it from dying, then it settles down.
