I was in the exact same boat as you. I leave at 5:30 AM and now it is dark for most of my 45 min ride, soon it will be dark on the ride home. Also, it will be getting cold and I wanted to run my heated jacket and grips without issue. My solution, an HID low beam. Uses only 35 watts, which gives me more headroom for heated stuff and man does it throw light. It is also much wider, so I can see into the woods and the tall grass for deer better. Best $100 I ever spent. Took all of an hour to get it all wired in and packaged up.
