Heated jacket connection

Where do you think it is best to run the connector to from the battery? Some say to leave it wedged between the tank and the seat whilst others I have seen, Police particularly, run a stretchy umbilical cord plugged in behind them. Without modifications the leathers zipped up mean the cable can only really exit from the front. Not tried the jacket yet but the heated gloves were a game changer in sub zero temperature.

I would put the connector between the tank and seat, you wonít notice itís there. I currently have the nylon loop for the BMW tank bag in the same place and it doesnít get in the way.

Mine exits the left side panel in the gap in the middle. I tuck it back in when not in use.

That's exactly where mine comes out.
Incidentally, the KEIS heated trousers and jacket I purchased is quite simply the best £350 I have ever spent in motorcycling. First time I used them, I grilled my legs and had markings on my skin for a few days after. Make sure you wear a barrier layer underneath, especially the trousers.
