Usually you would use one of those push-pull switches so that it stays where you left it and dose nit "bounce off" while you are riding.
I have had bikes were either I or the DPO had placed them;-
1) inside tool box
2) behind tool box
3) under frame seat loop ( only if you have the deep sided seat )
4) behind battery.

The one I likes most ( not on my bike) was having the earth lead earthed out always and removing the end cap to ride.

Anyone who knows anything about magneto bikes is likely to just pull off the kill button wire from the magneto.

"Secret kill switch" very James Bond.
Carry a lock, your bike is more likely to get loaded into a van anyway.

 no the ejector seat that i am working on is more james bond like - though the oil spray device, which i initially sought to install is common to all British bikes as pointed out by my italian bike friends....  *eek*

Funny you should say that.
I have a B50 complete with flame thrower , courtsey of missing muffler, now number 3 on the rebuild list.
An M 20 with both smoke & oil, courtsey of broken breather & oversized valve guides 
And an A 65 with tyre puncturing devices . courtsey of bits that always fall off. (No 4 on the rebuild list)

Would that make me agent 021 ( 3 x 007 ) ?

A few days ago, I was standing at the corner with a couple of neighbors waiting for the bus that takes us to the train station on workday mornings. One asked, "Why don't you ride your motorcycle to the station and leave it there during the day, because parking is free for motorcycles?" (but no hitching post, not that that would have changed my attitude). I tried to keep my laugh polite and ironic. I suppose there are those here who are comfortable leaving their bikes unattended for extended periods, but I have not reached that state of calm. The analogy did not occur to me at the time, and it is ceratinly a bit over-the-top, but I could have said, "no more than I would leave my daughter tied up and unattended outside a local bar."

manosound -

A lot of that depends on where you live.  I never even take the key out of my bikes (the ones that have keys) and seldom take it out of the car.   We usually don't lock the house when we're not there, although we do at night when we're in.

Some parts of the world are still like that!  some are not.  50 years and counting and nothing stolen yet.
