PIAA 1100X replacement bulbs

I have researched quite a bit to find replacement bulbs without any luck! I know they are MR16 and GU5.3 base, 50W 12V. I even bought a Ushio from a local lighting store it's this http://www.mr16usa.com/ushio-exz-50w...ight-bulb.html .
But it turns out the original bulbs have round lens and the Ushio has flat lens. In fact I looked around the Internet and have not been able to find one with the round lens.

Does anyone know where to get them?

Thanks!

They are $37.63 on amazon.com. PIAA 15352. (amazon's own listing of them has an incorrect product photo of an h4 bulb)

That's why I got rid of those lights. The bulbs are a very specific bulb and they're very expensive. They blew so often, that I could have bought Touratech HIDs on the front end, spent the same amount of money, and not had to worry about replacing so many bulbs half-way through a trip.

That's always an option (replacing the system). LED is definitely better. I've replaced 4-5 bulbs at this point, but it's hard to pull the trigger when a single bulb goes. If I knew I'd keep the bike for another 80k miles maybe I'd step up to replace it, but I'll probably keep buying expensive bulbs one at a time.
