A lot of people have hidden them under the seat 'hump', if you take a look at IED's CX500 build here http://caferacer.forumotion.com/t134p90-honda-cx-500-first-cafe-build it might give you some ideas :-)

Maybe consider buying a shorai battery. These things are literally a fraction of the weight of a normal battery and you can put it under your seat sideways. They are lithium so no leaking of acid and seriously they are insanely light and very efficient.

Try a gel battery, then you can lay it on its side, helps with location
