USB charger on the handle bars

I'd like to add a USB charger to the handle bar to charger my phone or GPS. Previous bike's I ran the wire directly to the battery. I was always afraid of leaving something plugged in a killing my battery. For the Gunner I'd like to tie it into the ignition if possible. Also I'd like to tie it in to something up front near the handle bars to avoid taking the gas tank off. Perhaps there is a power feed up front for heated grips? Just trying to see if anyone has been through this before and maybe can save me some investigation.

The power supply for heated grips are inside the head light, the cables are marked.

Popped open the headlight and found all sorts of good wiring. A lot of connectors for accessories (lights, heated grips, cruise control, ...) Spliced into the heated grip wiring and the USB charger works well when the ignition is on and doesn't work when the ignition is off. Perfect.

Erik, thanks for the info.
