I've heard of over-heating, but never had it happen to me once. Roadstar has always kept quite cool just as well as it should, even riding in parades at a measely 3-5mph. So long as you can keep your oil changed properly, air cleaner maintained, don't let fuel sit for to long untreated. I sit in traffic 3-5 days a week all summer long in the heat of the summer, and it gets hot, but not like that.
Something like that would point to something else being wrong to me.
