I have a Honda Goldwing 1994 se. There is a hook up in front of the right saddlebag underneath for a battery tender. Thought I would post this to help anyone wondering if the is a hookup on their bike.

That's a neat way of doing it. I have mine in the left trunk cubby pocket.

Thanks englishted, it was on the bike when I bought it. I don't know if it was oem or an aftermarket hookup.

My bike had a plug like that coming of the battery. It was for the prev owners heated gear. I use it for my tender also.

I was hesitent of putting my connection in the gas cap area...possible fumes combined with possible spark and it's good by motorcycle, hello Mr. insurance guy!

I have my connector for the Battery Tender run along the right side and coming up inside the right hand cubby pocket. Makes it nice to hook the charger to my bike because I have the Battery Tender sitting on a shelf along the right side of the bike when it is in the shop. Just open the right side pocket and plug it in. Nice!

My heated gloves have a plug like that and I have always set it up to come up through the gas fill opening.

When I got my battery tender, I just started plugging it in to the same connection. It's always worked great that way.

Mine is inside the right saddle bag, fed thru the rubber grommet where the compressor air line goes into the bag (underside front).
I keep it garaged so not being able to close the bag fully when charging is not an issue.

On one of my wings, long time ago I installed a cigarette lighter style 12v recertacle inside my fairing pocket for accessory use. I wired it directly to the battery through a fused link. My other wing had one of these already installed.I put a Cigarette lighter plug on my battery tender. Now I can plug it into either wing.

This is the exact set-up I used!

My Battery Tender plug is tucked up inside the battery cover. I just reach up and pull it through the cover gap at the bottom and then hook up the tender to it. When done I just tuck it back up out of sight.
