Engine casing heat question

Question for bikers after a long run on your bike or over an hour of riding
How long does your bike engine casing take to cool down?

I actually was testing this yesterday because I had a slight rattle at colder temps. After I returned home at 7:15, I read 201 degrees F. About 8:45 I read 115 degrees F.
This was at night time with a breeze.

It's nothing to worry about. Its about 26 degrees C in London right now. If you were at 220 degrees when shutting off the bike coupled with the sun possibly beating on it at 1:00PM that's fine.

What you want to worry about is the bike not over heating while running, not the time it takes to cool when shut off (unless you're putting a cover on it)
