Wiring carrying capacity has to be of a gauge size which will safely supply electrical current for the lighting and electrical devices which are attached to it, and the wiring needs to have the appropriate gauge and protective fuse to supply the necessary electrical current to run the additional lighting. In my VN900 I tried running additional wiring from the ignition hot to supply current for my accessories but I could not find a suitable place to tap into the ignition circuit, so instead I used a Radio Shack relay which is triggered by electrical current supplied to another system when the engine begins to run. When it is triggered it draws current directly from the battery, using a flat automotive fuse holder which I got from Ace Hardware and the appropriately sized fuse.
