Aaagh! It seems this part pictured above is THE part I need. However, Moto Works will no longer ship to the USA.

Anton, the 5 position switch might be a pain, but since I already have it, I might as well try using it. I am thinking the manner in which I will use it is to start my early GS without the headlight on, and then prior to moving out, switching over to have the light on constantly. I just very much prefer the headlight NOT drawing precious battery power until the bike is running.

And thank you to Rob for both the side lights explanation (makes perfect sense) and for the pretty picture of the part I want and need but cannot get (yet).
