  Relays are your friend.    I've motolights with power directly to the battery
  but control taken from a wire in the diagnostigs plug which is only hot when
  the ignition is on.   Lots of info at http://www.r1200gs.info/

  Many have tied extra lighting (using a relay) controlled by their high/low
  beam switch.   It's easy to do.

  The hard part on a GS is finding space to route the wiring.   It's tight
  in there :-)   Info on mounting my motolights can be found at

  And there is always the accessory socket.   You can power just about whatever
  you want from the accessory socket.   In effect, it's the accessory socket
  that powers my GPS and radar detector.
