Look carefully for drips anyplace besides the overflow hose. Make sure the drain on the water pump is not plugged. Maybe change the cap just because, and, check the pump for play.
If you were losing that much antifreeze through a head gasket, there would be other symptoms, I would think.
If you let the bike sit and idle, how long does it take for the needle to rise, and the fan to come on?

Unfortunately, a head gasket would be the one place it wouldn't leak to the ground and be noticed. I would think there would be some steam and tell tale odor though. What do the plugs look like?
