Hello to All!

New rider to the central Florida area. Just picked up a 2007 ZZR600 with 21k miles. Just completed my first oil change and now getting ready to do a coolant flush and fill. A couple things have me a little worried. I know Florida is a HOT state, but I've already seen my bike reach temps of 215 while stuck in traffic or at a light.
Is this normal?

Also, for coolant which is the best mixtures you guys have found for your bikes?

how does the 50/50 hold up? Any additives?
It holds up really well. I have only swapped it out once or twice in the 70,000 miles I have on the bike (and even then the old coolant didn't look bad). No additives. The temperatures here in Texas range from under 30° - over 100° F.

Thanks for the input. Going to try and run the Prestone 50/50 mix with Wetter Water. Living in Central Florida I feel the bike is always getting up to 215-225
