Radiator / Thermostat Queston... Normal?

OK 2004 UK Bike... in °C
is this normal, to make sure thermostat is ok etc..

Started the bike from cold'ish start
Guage shows -- indication that its cold
Waiting for a few mins I watch the temp' go all the way up to
80 - 82 - 83 - 82 (Missing 81?)
Then gradually goes down to 76 then rises again to 83 - 82 - 83 all the way to 104.6 fan comes on then temp goes to 106 before starting to come down.

Now is this normal or should it be different as its about 16-18°C Degress outside here

Thermostat opens at 78C. Temp will go past 78 at first as the coolant starts to circulate but it can only do so much, so temp will rise as you've described if the bike is stationary.

Sounds normal to me
