Beeping sound from '85 K100RT

I've searched and searched but can't find any references to this. I'm getting an audible warning type beeping sound on occasion. This appears to be happening when I'm traveling at slower speeds and using the engine for braking. For instance this morning I was descending a long hill in a lower gear and the sound appeared - it's a short series of audible beeps spaced about one second apart. First time I heard it, I was looking for a truck sounding a backing up signal around me. This morning, I pulled in the clutch and revved the engine slightly, and the sound stopped. I can't find any references in the owner's manual to this. Does anyone know what this might be?

I don't have a clue as what that could be. If you are a MOA member may want to post this question on the MOA site since I think there are a lot more classic K bike owners there than there is on the LT site.
