HIDs are great and all, but way too expensive for this cheap Scottish 

I ran PIAA 1100Xs on my RS and liked them, but even they were pricey, so 
I looked around and found some Hella driving lights (Hella quality is 
quite good, BTW) for very little money, and they perform beautifully.  I 
had a large set on my truck and have now installed a smaller set on my 
R1200GS: the Hella F50s. Cabela's is blowing them out for a small 
fraction of what other places sell them for. These are darn good lights 
and worth the investment, even if you are skeptical.
