Are you radiator fins smashed? Do you have good airflow? Even worse, are you abusing the clutch?
If you have excessive engine heat, you will lose coolant. You will lose even more without the overflow.

You'll have to figure out if it's overheating or burning it. Like mentioned check for pinches hoses, leaks, etc. Take your rad shrouds off and check the rads for damage. If they are crushed you'll need to replace them. If the fins are folded over you can buy a rad fin comb and straighten them. I washed mine out from the backside with a pressure washer and found a huge difference. (be careful doing this)
