So far it is sounding exactly like a carbon copy of what mine was doing.
A couple examples of how mine was acting. Began overheating about an hour and a half into a ride. Shifted into 6th and it cooled down. Didn't act up again the rest of an 8 hour day.
Road around all day with no issues, but noticed it began to overheat on the way home. Pulled over and had a cup of coffee, got home with no further overheating issues.
I took it to the dealer and they could not repeat the issue, but they did flush, drain, refill, bleed the system. It hasn't acted up since, and that was back in late August. They thought maybe it was a bubble in the system from when they did the flush at the 18K service, they really don't have any other/better explanation.
Prior to them doing that, the issue was common enough that I was spending way too much time watching the temp gauge. Likely to the point of distraction, but was making me really paranoid, because I would keep checking and it would be fine, and as soon as I would relax it seemed to overheat.
I was recently stuck for a couple of hours in traffic moving 0-5 miles per hour for 2+ hours due to a police chase/accident in 80+ degree temps. While the temp gauge went up a couple bars from where it normally sits, it never overheated. I have put about 5K on the bike since the last incident of it. It does appear to be resolved. Keeping my fingers crossed.
