I'd die down there. I'm not very heat tolerant.

The wiring in some of these photos speaks volumes to me!
I think the factory wiring is messy to start with. I'm picky about keeping things neat and orderly and it's hard to do when you have a bundle of wires splitting out all over the place under the main tube.

I'm leaning towards mounting the regulator just like you have yours. It will be close to the battery and it should be fairly easy to mount there. I will use the old VR mounting location for my additional fuse block so I can keep things neat (only really adding the GPS and one power point though I've considered adding lights since I'll have the power and sometimes ride in the dark where more light would be a big safety improvement).
