That's normal and should flash until you move off.

Hasn't been on for the last 560 miles though. Manual says it's a fault. Hopefully dealer will sort it out tomorrow.

"Possible cause:
The ESA control unit has detected a fault. In this condition, the motorcycle has too much damping and is uncomfortable to drive, especially on roads in poor condition.
* Have the fault rectified as quickly as possible by a specialist workshop, preferably an authorised BMW Motorrad dealer."

Sorry I read ABS.  Too much wine with dinner.

Should have demanded a loan bike.  In UK BMW would supply a replacement vehicle. Did the dealer not offer you anything.
