Saddle bags on an '07 1100 Custom

Any suggestions for a former sport bike rider now Custom cruiser?

I'm leaning towards the hard saddle bags (cases) at this point, any good ones to suggest? I like the hard bags vice the leather ones because of the security of being able to lock them up but if there are any leather out there that can fit the bill, I'm interested as well.

TIA

Yamaha makes a hard bag for the 1100 that is painted the same color as the bike. I don't know how they would look on a custom.
Hope this helps.

Hmmm.... a bit pricey there. I'll keep looking for now but look at this option again later.

Hard bags

These are $579, ready to paint. Not sure about hardware.

Those actually don't look to bad. It seems that most of the non factory aftermarket hard bags look CHEAP. I am quite impressed at what I can see on the web site.
