It's normal. I actually have a temperature gauge on mine and it will fluctuate between 196 and 206 degrees. It feel warmer due to the air flow around the motor.
I used some heat reflective tape to go onto the fender above the muffler to cool that area down. Before a passenger had a hard time sitting behind me and now it is more comfortable. My next step is to get the exhaust pipes ceramic coated to help. But neither help what the thermostat opens and closes at and the air flow around the motor and out of the vents on the sides.
