Installing 12v power outlet

I have a cig lighter socket that I want to install somewhere near the front of the bike. I plan to use it for my GPS (since the battery won't last long enough to keep it on on long rides).

What is the best place to hook up the power wires to? My bike is 2004.

I ran a power wire up from the battery to the speedo that powers my radar detector and cig plug that i mounted to my fairing stay with a zip tie.

You didn't put it through a relay?

I was wondering if there is a convenient spot where I can just hook up the cables without needing to install another relay. I expect the current drawn from the socket to be minimal, at least for the GPS, so I can live with a temporary solution for a little while.

No relay here... The outlet draws no power as long as nothing is plugged in.
