Listen to the electrical pros..... me, I wouldn't although it's not an awful idea really. If I were doing it, I'd cut into the low current side of the starter relay, if switched off the starter won't turn.
Your problem one day is the switch will wear out/corrode/otherwise fail from perhaps using it all the time or not using it enough. Carry a spare switch you can swap out if one day you can't start your bike.
However, I'd worry less about it being stolen from starting it... who is going to hotwire it? Nobody is going to take the time. They'll just push it onto a trailer or bring a lift and slide it on to a truck in two minutes. How many FJR's have been stolen.... um, not any that I've ever heard of from all the traffic on these forums.
Worry less, ride more. Fergedabout the switch idea is my advice.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
