well it was about 95-100 degrees this weekend... my bike ran about 180-183 at cruising speed. and my fan doesn't kick on till I'm in stopped traffic and it gets to about 214 degrees.

If your running around town your temp should stay right under the point when the fan kicks on. 167-170 is normal temperatures running at highway speeds.
