Am I too cool?

LOL,
Looking at the temp gauge, C to the left, there is a tick mark just to the right. Temp needle sits dead nuts on that tick mark while running down the road (60 - 70mph). Is this the operating zone?, I tested the fan by idleing the bike after the run and when the needle was just to the right of center, the fan kicked on. Run of 120 miles = 45.2 mpg
I never checked the thermostat as per the manual when the bike was apart, so.....the post.

Thanks!
ps. was 35F in the morning, 62F afternoon

In cold (cold for Louisiana) weather, my needle never gets past the first tick. Yesterday it got into the 80's and it stood around the thermometer symbol. I think what you describe is normal.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
