Up early, Mr. B. I think your "obvious" potential issue would be your primary concern. Leaving them on would not drain your battery as fast having a set of headlamps burning, but consider that you use heated grips when it's cold, when your battery is challenged. Being able to start your bike becomes a bigger deal. Turn the grips (and your driving lights) off every time and no problem. Leave them on and...maybe no problem, but maybe.
Would now be a good time to install a relay controlled fuse panel? You could wire your heated grips and driving lights through it. Turn the bike on, those devices are available. Turn the bike off, those devices shut down. Next time you have an electrical farkle to installb (GPS, power port, etc.), you've already got the fuse panel there.
Today's forecast is for 3 to 5 inches of snow, so you're not riding. Time's on your side. Food for thought, redline.
