Glad your first ride out was amazing! Great gearing set up too!
Post up some pictures of your bikes tail section, but normally it's just put your key in at the back of the bike, turn, and lift up your spare seat or the the solo cowl...Do you have an aftermarket undertail on the bike? With hotbodies undertail the key goes in under the tail section. Have a look around.
The fuel consumption sounds about normal, they are hungry beasts!
Do a search for temperature, but the bikes do tend to warm up in slower city stop and go traffic. You can use water wetter or the like, or even look for C/F Rad Fins, Front Rad scoops if your really concerned. Some guys do different fan mods, or have manual on/off controls for stop and go traffic so they can turn on/off the fans when they want before the temps start climbing, but really what you saw sounds about normal though.
