a bit worried here

Got the bike back from the dealer yesterday.
Rode only about 5km back home and just by curiosity touched the alternator cover once parked, and couldn't even touch it so hot it was... would that be normal? Left the bike in the garage and came back an hour later and the cover was still hot. Obviously not as hot as initially but still... As in the past I never worried about the temperature of the alternator I never took notice of that and don't know if that is normal... but coming out of that experience, and about to start another 1000 km trip, I am a bit worried. Should I? on a "normal" bike, does the alterator cover gets as hot? and keep so long in dissipating the heat once stopped??
