Question Where to put the Power Block?

I'm getting ready to do some farkeling on my new GT. I purchased the Touratech CanBus helper (designed for the GS but works on the GT as well), which has 5 power and ground connections; more than enough for what I want to do. It's about the size of a pack of cigarettes, so I'm wondering where folks have put these or similar power distribution blocks so they're out of the way but fairly accessible in case a fuse blows. Having not pulled the bodywork off my GT yet I don't know what kind of space is available underneath there. Any and all opinions are welcome, and a pic or two would be great as well. Thanks!

Re: Where to put the Power Block?

I put my Centech under the passenger's seat, but I put my BUSS 6-circuit fuseblock under the leftside Tupperware. Yes, it's not as accessible as some would like, but I'm fine with that. I can have that Tupperware off in about 3-5 minutes, on a bad day. I like Grif's school of thought regarding fuses. 99% of the time, if a fuse blows you have a bigger problem on your hands than just replacing a fuse ... so how accessible do they really need to be?
