Aux lights switch mounting

I recently got a new set of LED running lights for my bike. The set I currently have are slaved them into the highbeam circut, which has worked fine but I have decided that I want the ability to turn them on and off independently. I have a harness w/relay ready to go on but was wondering what everyone uses for a switch, and where they mount it? I was thinking a small lit rocker like this: But I'm not sure where to mount it...

Jeff - can't tell you which brand, etc, it is - but I mounted my switch on the right-side of the instrument panel (as you can see in my pic). It's using the DRLs as 12v+, so they go OFF w/ the ignition.



That piece of black "tape" right of the switch is 'covering' where I had made a hole for something, but then moved it, leaving a hole....

I still have a full deck.
