What is an acceptable operating temp for these bikes both at speed and in traffic? I've always been a stickler for coolant temp.

Depends on where you are location wise, up here in the sticks, I on average see 173-175 while riding (3rd gear, 6k on the tack). In traffic, 200+ always. I saw 236 once. fan didn't come on, so it and I went for a spin down the highway to get it cooled down.

If you're having problems like that, high heat, no fan...check the fan sensor connection right on the radiator. I popped mine off, some dirt / road grime came out of it and it worked fine after that.

or just stay out of traffic
