That certainly fits with the symptoms and is something easily tested by toggling the fan and watching the voltage.
However, when I noticed it on the road, I was riding at highway speeds on a relatively cool day and I would be surprised if the fan kicked on at all since even idling on a hot day takes several minutes to activate the fan.

Now the geek side of me wants to put a little indicator lamp on the fan circuit.
