For that matter, anyone could just steal the whole damn bike.
Locked hard cases are much more theft deterrent than soft bags. Period. Secure? Shit, I dunno. I have both, never lock anything, leave the keys in half the time, leave my helmet, tank bag, etc. I just don't ride my bike where it has to be 'secure', except when it's at home and then it's locked in a garage and the key is hidden.
The question was what bags he should get when he's already ordered Wolfman racks. Duh, that would be wolfman bags. already.
