Cooling fan

My 2007 K1200s.

Just out of curiosity...... It seems like every time I pull into my garage lately the timing works out that the cooling fan is just coming on. I always wonder if I should let the bike idle until the fan cools it back down to it designated temp or if I should shut it down and avoid it getting any hotter in a garage with no breeze? When its nice and cool out, and in the shade, I'll just shut it down and let it cool in the wind.

I should state, I've never had a problem with the bike overheating, or even restarting after riding hard (track day) with only a short 20 mins to cool.
