Hot Bike ???

bought the bike home from the dealers today , air temp about 18 degrees.
Only rode about 30 mile, fan was running and the whole bike seemed quite hot as in anywhere you touched it (front headlamp for instance) was very warm! is this normal?

The H4 halogen bulb will create a lot of heat, so expect it to be hot when touching your headlight.
Bikes get hot. Liquid cooling is aided by some air cooling as well, but a lot depends on your speed too. 30 miles at 120kph or 30 miles crawling through traffic?
Are you sure the fan was running the whole 30 miles ?
