Check the connection to the oil pressure sensor and make sure it's tight.  You may have to replace it, though.

was the bike close to stalling? The light may come on if so.

Probably just a loose connection on the oil pressure sender. But you might want to have a dealer check it out just to be sure- a flashing [low oil pressure] warning is fine but true low oil pressure has to be addressed and fixed. The oil pressure sender is located at the bottom of the engine, just above the oil pan, in the very front. You should see it with a single wire going to it; check that wire and the connection to the sender itself.
