Link refers to a GL 1800 not the 1500. Don't have this issue myself on the 1500 but it may be worth checking out.
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

This sounds like it could be the filtering cap on the alternator, the GL 1500's have a large filter capacitor mounted on the rear of the alternator, if you have a CB installed then there are two capacitors (black capacitor on the rear and a round silver capacitor mounted on the housing of the alternator). You may also have a alternator that is laboring to supply the needed current to keep the battery charged and running the electronics.
