Do you see coolant in the reservoir on the right-hand side of the bike? That's a fair indicator that there is sufficient coolant in the engine.
Good idea to take a look at the impellor.
If that checks out good, try draining the coolant and doing the garden hose thing to check for blockage.
If coolant is in there and is flowing properly then it cannot be overheating. Thus, it is either not there or not flowing.
Typical operation is that it heats up at a stoplight and cools down once underway. It should not run hot when moving.
Without a Thermo-Bob the temperature gauge will swing from cold to hot after sitting at a stoplight and when moving again it will go down to just a bit above the "C".
