Default 1985 honda shadow 750 coolant issue

Hi, I just bought my first bike. I had it in the drive way running for 20-30 min and as it got hot coolant start coming out the small hose under the bike. The owner told me it had not bin run for 2seasons. After the bike cooled down I tried it again and this time when the engine heated up the fan started up and them temperature seemed steady and only a small amount of coolent dripped out. I could also hear the coolent bubbling when it was shut off. I also noticed that the resivoir had very little fluid in it, should that be to the full line when the engine is cold? Something just doesn't seem right, or maybe it just needs to be run a few times to get things moving again. Any idea's????

My first bike was a 85 Honda shadow vt700 and it had the same issue i ended up stripping the fan wires and twisted them together to make the fan always on. But you could have a bad temp sensor. I'd check that first before trying to rig it.
