Don't think there is a way you can but I will be following this to see if anyone has been able to make it work that way. Terrible design IMO.

There is a way, but i dont listen to the radio much. I think if you hold the switch for a few seconds it changes from scan to just scanning through the presets. Its something like that. I will have to check it on my bike tonight.
actually, i just found this, and it appears it may not work as i thought. Please read from the manual below. the preset scan feature is the last one listed.
Manual Tuning

To manually tune the radio to a different frequency:
Press the Up Arrow button or the Down Arrow button to select the frequency in that direction. Hold the selected arrow button, and after a short delay of 1.5 seconds, the radio will continue to change frequencies until the selected arrow button is released.
SEEK Tuning

See E in LCD Display Examples. In SEEK, the radio tunes in to the next strong station.
Press and release the MODE SEL switch up (UP) to tune in the next strong station upward in the band. Press and release the switch down (DN) to tune in the next strong station downward in the band.
NOTE:
The SEEK icon appears in the display as long as the receiver is seeking the next strong frequency. The SEEK icon disappears as soon as the receiver has tuned in the next station.

SCAN Tuning

In SCAN, the radio continuously tunes from one strong station to the next until the SCAN is cancelled.
See F in LCD Display Examples. Press and hold the MODE SEL switch UP or DN approximately 5 seconds to scan the band for strong station signals. Each strong station remains tuned in for 8 seconds before the radio scans to the next station. The receiver will continue to scan until cancelled.
To select a station, cancel SCAN while the radio is tuned to that station. Press the MODE SEL switch UP or DN to cancel a SCAN moving up the band.
Preset Memory Tuning

Use the soft keys, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5/Left Arrow as preset buttons to store frequently tuned stations.
NOTES:
See C in LCD Display Examples. AM can store 6 preset frequencies.
See E and F in LCD Display Examples. Separate FM1 and FM2 bands allow the rider to store 2 sets of 5 preset FM frequencies (10 total). Use the More soft key to toggle between FM1 and FM2. The full range of FM frequencies can be selected in either FM1 or FM2.

To store a current station, press and hold any one of the preset buttons for 1.5 seconds. After an audible signal (a chirp), the station's frequency has been stored and the frequency will appear in the display next to the preset soft key.
To tune to a stored station, press and release the preset soft key.
Preset SCAN Tuning

See G in LCD Display Examples. In preset SCAN, the radio continuously tunes from one preset station to the next until the preset SCAN is cancelled. A P.SC icon will display while preset SCAN is active.
In the FM band, press and hold the More soft key for approximately 3 seconds. Each preset station remains tuned in for 10 seconds before the radio moves to the next station.
To select a station, cancel preset SCAN while the radio is tuned to that station. Press the MODE SEL switch UP or DN to cancel a preset SCAN.

This has always bothered me as well but it seems you can start the P.SC by the soft key on the radio itself and stop it when desired by the handlebar control. I have not tried this but I will. If this works this helps, just wished you could also start the P.SC by the handlebar controls.
