Ditto to the above responses.
If your lights aren't on and there's no overflow, it's within the bike's specs. But i hear you; I'd be concerned if the fan kicked on while on the highway too, even if it was 110°+.
The water wetter in the coolant will certainly help it get rid of the heat faster.
When i was there, i changed my oil twice a year... summer was 20W50, winter was 10W40 and a new filter.
I do have one other suggestion, however. I think that the valves are due to be checked at 15000 mi (not sure about that). Incorrect valve settings could cause more heat too, so that's something you could check.
