Souns to me like you have an issue with one of the "de-activate" switches not holding closed. There are at least 3 of them that I know of, clutch handle, and brake lever and brake pedal....that's not saying there are other issues, but start checking there.

Previously on my 1500 I had a similar issue and it was a brass bushing on the clutch lever that had worn down overtime. The fix was to replace the bushing with a new on from Mother Honda. Not sure if the 1800's have a similar bushing, looking at a parts fiche I don't see one..Although this is listed on the fiche:

I can't speak to a 2012, but my 2008 had this exact reason for the cruise to refuse to hold. Here's how to test if it is the clutch lever bushing.

Set the cruise, slide your fingers under the clutch lever and push it slightly "out" for longer than the cruise had been dying before. If the cruise turns off even with the clutch lever held out, it's not the bushing. A bad bushing allows the lever to flop in and out just enough for the sensor to think it's being engaged. If you hold it out and the cruise works properly, you've found your problem.
