Lights in France

Hi folks, I am off on my first trip to France on 2 wheels in about 2 weeks, and need to know if I need to get a headlight beam deflector like you get for cars, can anyone give me a definitive answer. I have a 2002 V-Strom DL1000

Done many miles in Europe on the Wee with no changes to light setup. Generally Europeans seem to accept vehicles without beam deflectors.

However the Wee's lights (and I presume the Vee's) are pretty powerful and I did have a few problems with oncoming drivers flashing me at night as I guess I was dazzling them pretty thoroughly....
