Anyone know what sort of temperature the engine oil generally gets to?

its not a car engine but i hope this might give you a ball park figure.
on my air cooled motorbike the oil temp sits around 85 deg c .cruising but if i start giving it some or get held up in traffic it will rise to 110 deg c.
which i thought was a little high but it is air cooled..

its generally fairly close to coolant temp IIRC

trying to remember my brothers gauges in his xr6t. I think its about 70-80? normal driving but up 90ish when giving it a flog.

but as above, between 60-110 id say is a good range
