Ah, you're in Australia. What you're describing is normal. The last few days here in Sydney it's been hot and humid. I've flashed my bike so the fans come on at 96, and turn off at 91. My bike still goes to 105-110, and stays there no matter what the fans do. It's only after I do some riding at 50+ for a few mins the temps come down. I think the fans are small, and only designed to stop the bike from overheating, not cool it down.

Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.
