A good running temperature for the 10R?

Hey guys/gals,
Have a quick question. As a new member and new 10R owner , hence my newbie rating, I have a newbie question. What is a good temperature to look for on my temperature gauge while riding during normal operation? My previous bike was an '84 Yamaha Vision KZ550 so it didn't have any of these cool features. I just want to know what to look for JUST IN CASE. Thanks.

Don't be alarmed when summer rolls around and you see 220 on a regular basis. The temps climb really fast on this bike.
