Not meaning to offend anyone. However I would not buy THAT headlight. I would get one with the full reflector & pilot bulb. It WILL throw more light downwards on the road, whereas the directional unit cuts off  the lower part of the beam, making the pavement less visible - You could hit a turtle!  The full reflector tripods are available on Ebay all the time. I believe they work, & look better. 
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

The best headlight I ever put on a bike is the Harley dual bulb unit. Low beam is broad and has excellent distance. The high beam is a separate 35 watt bulb in a spotlight inset inside the headlight. The low beam stays on when the high beam is on. Total draw is 90 watts in high beam mode. A dedicated relay fed directly from the battery is the way to rig it. The question is can the system support the 90 watt draw.

I believe it can at high speed or short distances at lower speeds (when needed). I'm running two 55 watt H3 spot lights in conjunction with the 55 watt headlight - that's 165 watts in total.

 Thanks Singh, thats what i was looking for. I think a blue pilot lamp would look cool as opposed to the yellow hue.
