Lockable hard bags for America?

I have the 2011 America with the Triumph leather saddle bags. They look good and hold a fair amount, but I hesitate to leave anything of value in them since they can't be locked. I wonder if any of you have added hard, lockable bags to the America and if so, what did it cost you, including the mounting brackets, etc.?

Vito,
I fitted a set of new Tsukayu Strong Hardbags a week ago.
What a top set of bags. Tsukayu's sales and delivery process was faultless. I'm still getting use to their size but am extremely impressed by the high quality of the bags and the fitting kit supplied.
I previously ran a set of compact Mutazu Silver LN Hard Saddlebags but they were toy-like quality compared to the Tsukayu Hard Bags.

I bought the Matazu MU bags in black but have not had the time to finish mounting them. for the money they seem very good. They do lock.
Locks are meant to only keep the honest people out. If someone wants in, no lock will work.
I have the easy brackets and the one bag that is finished comes on and off in a second.
If security is really your concern, any bags can be popped open in just a second.
Good luck!

I went with the Tsukayu strong bags with the LED turn signals and then added the protective top and side pieces. Very nice set of bags.

I also have the Triumph leather saddlebags. They work well and look good. I leave them when I am parked without worrying. If I had to leave it overnight I would use plastic bags inside the saddlebags, grabbing them when stopped for the night. That would also keep the contents dry.

I dont even look for hard bags, let alone lockable ! I use leather soft bags ( when I need them ) but why lock them ? I also drive a soft top jeep, and when nice out, I dont even have doors or top on ! I dont need locks is what I am saying !

Hard Bags

Purchased these from Viking thet are OK. Very small but good for what I use them for. I do like the additional lighting
