Has anyone seen or have a Xenon Headlight on their Gl1000? I'm looking to light up the road as much as possible and I know that that is one of the best ways to do so. I do not have fairings, nor will I be getting any, they just really aren't my thing. I have a naked wing that is turning into a homegrown cafe racer/bobber style bike.
I do know that Xenon headlights can use a lot of power, but I can't imagine it being more than running 2 extra fog lights, 2 extra tail lights, and a blaring radio that I see other bikes using. So any info would be appreciated!

Have you installed a headlight relay yet? It can get you about 1.5 volts extra to the headlight and makes a world of difference. I strongly suggest you add a relay before messing with the bulb as it saves your starter switch as well. On a GL1000, the power goes through the ignition, starter, about 10 plugs, etc. So a relay lets the headlight get battery voltage instead. There is another post showing the details.
