Has anyone here hooked up USB on your bike to use as a power source?

What are you looking to power? What could you not power with just a standard battery tender style pigtail or cig lighter....

Thought about putting some usb speakers in the rear, or maybe just use it to charge a phone.

USB power is +5v. You'd need to step down from what you get off of the battery as I expect 12v would fry a lot of USB powered gear. Still, I wouldn't think it would be that hard to provide and wire up a +5v source from the bike.

Yeah, what Birdman said. Alternatively, here's a schematic for converting it:
