It can take a long time for all the engine oil to reach operating temp. I've ridden bikes for hours before the engine oil reached 150* on a digital temp dip stick. The oil in the pan takes the longest to reach operating temp.
I run a cold engine for several minutes before changing oil. If the bike was just ridden I'll change the oil right away.

Idling will warm the oil faster.
