Default Idling too high??

Recently I noticed that after being ridden, even for just a few minutes, my '09 rubi will begin to "walk" itself when in low gear and especially in reverse. On level ground it will walk itself backwards without hesitation, and if I take my 210 lbs off it moves even faster. Though when I read about the idle being too high I always read references to the motor sounds like it was under low throttle while sitting at idle. It does sound like it idling high to me but I have nothing to compare it to. Any input greatly appreciated.
