The backstage part of RadRibbonView is opened in popup and is outside of the visual tree where you placed your RadBusyIndicator. Because of this the RadBusyIndicator cannot be shown over the backstage part. You will have to add a new RadBusyIndicator for each of your RadRibbonBackstageItems to get this working.
All the best,
