Potentially not good under any circumstances.
There's clearly too much oil in the engine if it's visible in the sight glass when running.
No oil should be visible in the sight glass when the engine is running.
I would suggest removing some oil at the drain plug when it's cold, to bring the level in accordance with the owners manual.
About a cup full, will be all you need to remove.
With the engine cold, check oil level in the sight glass with the bike upright/vertical.
The level should be somewhere between the lines on the crankcase. (engine not running)
On my 1098 SFS the level is at the top line when cold, and right at the very top of the sight glass when hot. (engine not running)
