The R1200 headlight (which I have ridden in fog and rain in the week I've owned it) is in quite unbelievable. The high beam is wonderful. Was going to get some Baja Designs Squadron LEDs but the standard BMW LED is so good I think I won't bother.
800's headlight was not bad, imho. Until the reflective paint departed :P

LC's led is imho not that wonderful, but especially on the high beam... it's pretty good.

Not a xenon though.
