Great.  My bike must be screwed up.  It doesn't fluctuate.  
Dave.  '96, Black is beautiful.

Like Jeffrey and Bill says, this appears to be normal for this bike. 
Mine has always behaved like that too.

My temp gauge has started fluctuating slightly - maybe two widths of the needle
- while I'm riding at a constant speed.  I've noticed it mostly on the
freeway I take to work, but it previously doesn't move at all from the warm
position, unless I'm stuck in traffic.  I'm thinking the thermostat may
be sticking, but as I haven't struck this problem before I'd appreciate
other people's input.  As a side note, we had a week of +40°C days two
weeks ago (which made the daily commute rather uncomfortable), but the bike
behaved flawlessly.  It's only this week (tops of only 30°C, and very nice
riding weather) that the gauge has started acting up.  FWIW, I checked the
coolant and it seems fine.
