Hello everyone,

I took my first longer ride (120 Miles) on my CX this past weekend.
I noticed that in cruising in 5th gear at 6-7,000 rpm my temperature needle was about 2 -3 needle widths above the normal middle sitting point on gauge.
If I slowed down to around 5,000 RPM the engine would very slowly go back to the middle of the temp gauge.
The weather was sunny and around 85* F.

The gauge never swung any farther to the hot side and I got home with no problems.

Is this normal? Or should i worry about my cooling system?

Thanks!
