Locking Saddle Bags

I am considering replacing the factory saddle bags on my 2007 V-Star 1100 with a set of locking hard side saddle bags. Any recommendations

These are pricey but appear to be very well made and come with nice hardware for a V-Star- http://cavalryfiberglass.com

I found them after ordering a pair from Reckless that have hardware to fit a Fat Boy. They don't have mounting hardware for a V-Star so I will have to modify the existing hardware or make new all-together. We will see his this goes- http://www.recklessmotorcycles.com/index.html I saw the bags at their booth at Bike Week and was in impressed with the look and quality. They are made by hand on-demand so wait time is 14-21 days. I didn't care for the quality or the look of the bags from Asia.
Good luck, whatever route you take.
