I do this with my Tiger, specially when it is cold out. I realize the Germans do some crazy things with thier wiring schemes, so you may not have these options...

Yep- another option is to look for the male/female connector that a lot of bikes have in between the headlight and wiring harness, and just unplug that. The taillight will still draw a little current, but its usually a little more accessible than the fuse box.
