Easy under-seat SWITCHED wire to use as a relay trigger?

Want to add a relay so my Baja Designs LED lights power is controlled by the ignition switch ON. Right now I have a 12v from battery to a toggle switch to light. I always remember to turn them on and off, but I am always concerned that someone will switch them on when parked and I come back to a dead battery.

So.... Without poking my 12v tester into wires under my seat, does anyone know of an easy access, under seat location SWITCHED power wire I can use under there? Just don't feel like taking off front fairing parts to get to the wires in that area... Much prefer an under seat wire.

BTW, the Baja Designs XL Sport LED lights have been AMAZING! Not too bright that I need to dim them for oncoming traffic, but bright enough to wonderfully illuminate, and better yet, BE SEEN in daylight. Friends have told me that when they see those lights they know that "something" not the norm is heading towards them (one low beam, two very bright wide lights) and it makes them notice and pay attention. Exactly the reaction I would want, to be noticed. Got a great price during the 2017 Black Friday sale.
