If you observed your bike for 7:20 minutes idling it will overheat. It needs air flow over the radiators to keep it cool.
Recent thread refers to additional cooling capacity - check it out.

Gas boiling in the tank is totally unrelated to the coolant overflow. I have an oversized Clark gas tank that rides lower and closer to the motor than the stock tank does and it occasionally does the same thing. If you are concerned, try adding some adhesive heat shielding to the bottom of the tank. It may or may not stick because of the gasoline vapors.
There's nothing wrong with the bike that riding faster wouldn't cure.

As far as overflow actually flowing. Well that is a sign that the system is working.
The header glowing red thing is kind if strange. But remember these are basically race bikes. They don't take kindly to standing in place. Ride them hard and they will reward even under the most brutal heat.
