Need cheaper handlebar driving light switch for 2010 R1200GS

Have a set of Cyclops driving lights and havenít worried about a master switch up until recently. I normally leave them on but would like the option of turning off. I have priced the genuine camhead driving light switch - Worth over $200 - There should be plenty of cheaper aftermarket options but the ones I have seen look really tacky. Any suggestions guys ?

look on Ebay for telltale rocker switches.
I got mine for less than 10 bucks, works fine. I mounted it with double stick tape next to the outlet on the dash, 2016.
The hardest part fo the install was finding a good ground.

Yes they sell LED lights, etc.

I purchased driving lights , complete wiring harness kit including handlebar switch. This setup has been on my bike for over 1 year and is just fine.
Any of the components are available individually. I did not steer you to a dead end street. Sorry.
