waterproof switches for auxillary gear

I just picked up a 2012 V-Strom 650 and want to add some additional electronics and want to have some switches to control the power. The added electronics would be items such as GPS, USB power outlets, and lights. I would like rocker switches or toggle switches that are waterproof or at least highly water resistant, not too large but able to be used with gloves if need be.

I will probably want to come up with some flat mounting plate so would go with switches that were made to set on a flat plate would be what I am after rather than those in a handlebar mount.

If anyone has some links to such switches I would like to know.

Switches for Motorcycle Electrics, cheap worldwide shipping.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

You can also check a boat supply shop in your area if your in a hurry but your gonna probably pay more then Eastern Beavers prices.

The boat supply suggestion is good - there is a large marine supply dealer not too far north of me.

Greywolf - I am embarassed to say that in my Google search before I posted I found the site that you listed - but I guess due to the shock of seeing ONE handlebar switch for $25 I neglected to scroll down and discover additional switches and at more reasonable prices. I am feeling better about finding good switches now.

I want to keep things like GPS and USB outlets powered when the bike is off for a short time but like the idea of a positive switch disconnect for extended downtime.
