Also, riding in the desert, in tight and twisty single track I've never had a cooling issue. I make sure my radiators are in good working order, my jetting is correct, and I don't sit and idle for any period of time.

Keep moving, radiators clean from mud and coolant to top of radiator .
There are thousands of water cooled bikes ridden every weekend with no issues
You know your bike is getting too hot when the coolant boils and starts spitting out the overflow
You worry too much. Go ride and have fun

You can't 'un-do' and overheating bike just because you know the temp.
Most people slow down when they overheat, which is just the opposite of what the motor wants.
Put on silicone hoses, a 1.6bar radiator cap, engine ice, and you will be fine, unless you are an ametuer at tight clutch work; then you might need a fan.
