Do you have a numeric gage or the one with a couple of lines and then a red area? If you have the latter you can actually see tiny numbers on the outter edge of the lines if you put your eye at a severe angle and know where to look. The numbers are in *C. The line in the 9:00 horizontal spot or mid-gage is 105*C or 219*F.

Generally I believe anything above 230F is too hot. If it starts to creep up during tuning I take it out for a cool down run and then continue tuning if needed. You can also put a big fan on the front wheel well cooler.
100*C or 212*F is not a problem.
