More newbie questions: ABS flashing, Cruise, Radio program

Okay, I've searched the wisdom and faq's, but I can't find direct answers to my questions, and not having the original manual yet, I am forced to ask here.

1. ABS lights flash every time I start the bike, until I start moving forward. Bike just had brake system serviced and said all was good. Normal?

2. Every time I want to start it, I have to first press button "A" on the fob, looked to try to find the re-prorgaming plug for the alarm, but can't find it. anybody have a pic of where to look, what it looks like? I don't need / want an alarm or immobilizer.

3. What does the toggle switch on the left side under the lift handle do?

4. And finally, how do I program radio stations as presets in the radio? (I know, I'm stupid!)

Thanks Les - I may just do that if I can't figure some of it out. Thanks for the offer!

I am retired, so that makes me available any time.
The flashing light is normal when you start out. It is checking the ABS and needs to roll, like 3 miles per hr. for it to go out.
The switch under the seat could be your seat heater--though that is generally on the right hand side.
I do have a radio guide at home, could even copy and send to you.
