Well,I had been looking for LED headlamps or auxiliary lights,but have stopped my quest. It seems that these extra light(s) come real close to maxing out the TW's out-put?. I know,some only have .75-1 amp draw,but............ .

A 15W headlight isn't going to max out the electrical system if you replace a 55W bulb with it. However, the TW having a shunt regulated alternator, the alternator won't notice the difference. I think 8000 kelvin is also too hot. I'd be looking for something around 4000 to 5000 K. LED's are also tricky to drive so the electronics behind the LED's is important. This thing looks like it uses five 5W LED's to achieve its rated 15 watts. If you are serious about lighting, a HID projector headlight (35W) with a low-beam shutter is something to look into.
