I like halogens just fine, so, no I haven't, lol! But I have seen others that have, so they are apparently available. I'm not much help am I? Lol!

Not really, but experience based comments beats opinions anyday.

I use this type of LED with external driver which I tucked it into my Vetter fairing on my GL1100.

Here is my install on my Valkyrie where I tucked the driver onto the back of the headlight which may be suitable for your GL1000.🙂

I picked up an LED from SuperBrightLEDs.com to install in my 1200. Well worth the money and effort. The LED makes the old H4 look like a candle. I've swapped out H4s to LEDs in my BMW R100RT and my cars.
The type I have has no fan but a large heat sink. I needed to "mill" out the inner bucket of the fairing to clear the heat sink.
