WD4ITY has no clue what he in talkjing about in regards to starting the bike or moving it has no effect on brakes loosing pressure. I for one have this EXACT same issue. I can bleed the brakes to where they are rock solid, and while sitting still the brakes are rock hard. The moment I move the back backwards or forwards even the slightest bit, the brakes loose all pressure and the handle moves to the grip. It's due to the front rotor being out of alignment or at an angle in comparison to the brake caliper. When you move the bike forward or reverse the rotor is pushing the pads apart causing your handle to have a no pressure effect since you must now squeeze it a few times to regain pressure. On my FXD this was caused by the front wheel not being spaced properly causing the forks to come in at the bottom causing a slight rotors out of angle effect. I did notice a starting effect where I would loose some pressure, but I accounted this to me sitting on bike, lifting it up straight which caused the rotor to push on pads which in turn made me thing starting caused the loose of pressure. Don't always believe what people type on the internew telling you that moving a bike has no effect when it in fact does and any Harley tech or sport bike tech for that matter, worth their salt should tell you this same thing.

First thing, is the bleeder valve on the caliper at the wheel in the high position?
If it's on the lower part of the caliper, air will be trapped above it.
Sometimes, a brake vacuum bleeder works better than the traditional way:
After bleeding all the air you can, leave it overnight with the pedal/lever (you didn't state if the front or rear brake) tywrapped in the ON position overnight.
IF it's the rear brake, make sure there's a slight amount of play before the rod to the pedal engages the master cylinder piston (if not, it won't allow the piston to fully return).
