T-bird lighting

First off , I am going to buy a 1600 or a Storm , I prefer the 1600 to the blacked out 1700 version --one problem though -- headlight .
I have read in various places that T-bird 1600 headlight is very poor so...
Question is ,, how poor compared to the HD's { without light bar and additional lighting }and other Bikes I have owned -BSA/HD/Honda/Triumph Bonneville /ect ???.
I have seen small extra lighting for sale--twin lights { fast Eddy } but where to mount them so they dont detract from T-Birds beauty ?.
I read about someone mounting by front brake --not my idea of good .
Has anyone found a way to mount any of these small dual lights above the turn signals on forks ? I want to avoid a light bar or crash bars and keep the clean lines .
I will be riding at night a lot, and in deer country .
Thanks !
