It should be fine to idle for 15 mins or so. If it gets too warm, the electric radiator fan will come on as needed to cool the engine. But I wouldn't recommend walking away and leaving it for an extended period of time, "just in case" something goes awry.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question! ... Anon
