    I currently use an SAE pigtail connected directly to the battery for charging and tuck it behind the rubber battery retainer strap when not being used.  It stays out of the way and is easy to access and doesn't go through any circuit on the bike.  My battery charger is an Optimate I bought at a Honda dealer that will sense and charge all types of batteries automatically, and it was very economical compared to other brands.  Just a trickle maintainer type thing.
