Intermittent problems are a sumbitch to troubleshoot.
Next time it happens, stop and open the gas cap. If it is a vent issue, that will stop the bucking.
If that doesn't work right away, stop and pull the seat off. Find the pinkish vent hose and give it a good blow to clear it.
I suggest these two things because it sounds like a fuel delivery issue and these are both common causes. You've eliminated another, the vacuum petcock.
If neither of these work, you may have an intermittent ignition issue, in which case I would suggest you stock up on rum, cigars, and a live chicken to sacrifice to Electrocutus, the demi-god of motorcycle ignition...
