**issue: I don't know how much extra current the GPS will use, so I don't know if it will pop any fuses

best option: use a relay to tap off the battery, and have it trigger with the head/tail light leads so that the power shuts off when the bike is off

protip - if you tap off the tail light, then you can put the key in the "park" mode and still get power while the bike is off, and keep the headlight off to save the battery
I am seeing a unused connector with a brown and black wires. Mine is 2013 model. The wires are pretty skinny looking.
