Radio Reception in NJ and First Gear Issue

Quick question re my stock radio - 2001 LTI. My FM reception in central New Jersey is not that great. I only get 2-32 stations clearly, and they are not that strong. I don't think its the area since my car radio gets about 6-7 stations without a problem. Could it be my antenna, a connection, or the BMW radio itself?

Also, when I first start the bike, its often difficult to get it into first gear. I frequently have to re-clutch a few times. This isn't a problem after riding for a while, just when I first start out (engine/motorcycle is cold). Is there an adjustment of the linkage that could help with this?

My '07 has the same first gear issue. I rode a lot this year in the winter and it was worse when it was really cold out (if that helps you figure out the cause).
