Cool Bags and Windshields

I have had my 2012 950 V Star (non-touring) for a year and I believe it is time to get a windshield and saddlebags for some future rides.

I never owned these accessories and there's so many choices. I would like to get others first hand opinions on what might best fit for my bike. I would rather spend no more than $500, after all they're my 1st set.

I would like to use these for not only local rides or errands, but weekend trips as well.

I would prefer saddlebags with a lock within them.

Does the windshield size matter compared to my own height? I'm 5' 9".

feel free to vote for bike of the month and submit your own for voting

and please take our census

be sure to ask in the V Star section here.
i believe you can get a set of hardbags with a lock for probably around $200. for the windshield, you're probably best going with a Yamaha one since it's specifically fitted for your ride. and that fits right in with your budget. windshield height seems to be a matter of personal preference. i'm 5'10" and got one of the shorter windshields and i don't have any problem with wind buffeting and such.
