Oil light on

Potential newb here,

I'm potentially purchasing a 07 FZ6 with 13,xxx miles on it. An acquaintance of mine is selling and he graciously offered to let me stretch the FZ6's legs a little. My plan was 100+ miles. I left for work and after 21 miles NP. Left work for my journey and hopped on the freeway. Once the speed limit got to 70, the red oil light came on. I exited immediately. When getting down to 35-45 mph, light goes off. So, I press on and same thing. I get to my destination and checked oil level, leaks etc. all good. Decided to get home asap, and took back roads averaging 55-65 mph. No light! Got close to home and tried 70 mph again, red light on. Exited for home and light goes off after 1 minute or so.

Back story about current owner. He stopped riding 2 years ago due to problems with his clutch hand. So, bike has not been run at high rpm in awhile. But, he did start it every month and let it idle.

Anyone have something similar? I really like the bike, but If this turns out to be a bad oil pump, no go!
