Engine overheating slow moving

Hi, r1200gs 2006, 700km still running it in, my first BMW motorcycle.
Traveling home I got stuck in heavy traffic, the motor overheated and low oil pressure indicator. After leaving the motorway and picking up some speed again all return to normal.
Now my question: is this normal for the GS to overheat when standing still or slow moving in heavy traffic, is this because of the air cooled motor?
Thank, Andre
