    Thats a good lesson to be aware of.. after all, avoiding going to starbucks is just downright unrealistic.
    Probably the dick parent telling the kid to go grab the helmet. I have seen parents using kids to steal. It is rare but happens. I was at one store where a parent had a kid sitting on his shoulders, handed the kid some stuff and ran for the door. No-one wanted to chase the guy as he would probably end up falling and the kid would off been injured. Well one guy started too chase but everyone else yelled at him to not chase him..

    last i remembered...kids under age 12 who steals or sell drugs only gets a backseat ride home...nothing else..

    anyways, back to the thread at hand....yes, i'd go for hard lockable bags...top or side is your choice.

    If you don't need a ton of storage a single top case can hold a helmet or 2 depending on the size you get. You can always install side bags later if you need more room. The Givi ones are very easy to remove and install when needed. They do have a warning to not exceed 120km/h. Not sure what will happen if you do, I have not tested it myself.

    Well after some deliberation, decided to go for an Ogio tail bag. Large enough to throw in lunch, pair of shoes, water bottle, and starbucks gift card... without being too bulky. Seems good so far, kept my stuff dry when I got caught out by the rain the other day.

    Once you get hard luggage that works as well as Givi, it's hard to go back to backpacks and soft luggage.

    How do the Ogio saddlebags connect to the bike? I'm also looking for something passenger friendly.

    This is what I ended up with, for now. Saddle and tail bags are Firstgear Laguna and a Firstgear Monza tank bag. The saddle bags bungees around the rear pegs and a bungee from bag to bag around the rear fender.

    Bag attaches via 4 straps (2 front, 2 rear). I have my front straps looped around the frame, and the rear straps looped around cargo hooks below my seat. The straps are designed to go around frame, hooks, or under the seat, depending on what your bike is like.

    The front straps seem to loosen up ever so slightly, probably from where my butt/bottom of jacket move it around.. the straps at the back keep it locked down secure. This particular bag also has a rain cover that flips out which seemed to work well the other day when I rode home from work in a downpour. It's also compatible with the Ogio sport sidebags, whose straps go through the bottom part of this tail bag to keep everything locked together. I don't own the sidebags so it is difficult to show, but the guy at Holeshot showed me, and it seems to work.

    One thing I've noticed is that you always want more storage than you have, no matter how little you think you need in the beginning. In this CASE, more is better
