Auxiliary Light Switch

The Thunderbird has an extra lighting swicth on the left handlebar. Does anyone know if you can wire a set of motolights to that switch?

I've ordered motolights and am planning on doing exactly that.

There's a great thread or two on here (too tired to look them up) about how there's a hot wire right in the headlamp of the Tbird that is the wire from the aux light switch, and how to connect aux lights right up to that wire. Its also here on the Triumph 1600 forum http://tinyurl.com/5wfg7ze

What if there were no hypothetical questions?
