Default New hard bags?

So, I have an 11 XR with the leather bags. Been wanting to add hardbags, but they're expensive. I had a set on order last year. My local dealership assured me they had the latches, locks and keys included. After waiting weeks for them to arrive, GUESS WHAT?, no latches, locks or keys. The dealership wouldn't make good on their price or even sell me the locks at their cost, so I no longer do business there..

I just found this online:

http://www.motosport.com/cruiser/vic...mmy_source=pdp

I chatted with a rep from that site and asked him about the latches, locks and keys. He took about 2 minutes to research and then guaranteed me 100% that they are included.

Do you guys know anything about motosport.com? Good/bad experience? They seem to have a lot of OEM equipment at good prices, but I'm clearly skeptical about what he told me. The chat rep's name was Robbie...

Nevermind. I got it figured out. I looked here:

http://www.motosport.com/cruiser/oem...36-all-options

Remembered that Ma Vic only sells the locks and keys as a complete ignition kit. I confronted Robbie on chat and s/he disconnected on me without saying anything. LOL Anyway, all good.

Just ordered a set of hard bags from Ma Vic. 50% off ('til 3/27/15), only $500 for a set. Unfortunately, they don't sell 'em in a matching color for my bike so there's a visit to a paint shop in my near future.

Ok, now I understand...

Just got my hard bags delivered. I can confirm that there are no lock assemblies included. The included parts list reads:
"2 Saddlebag Lock ----- (Supplied with vehicle)"

I can also confirm that the saddlebag locks only come as part of an entire ignition system. Gotta go with the "hardball" set. What a fk'n PITA.

I went through this last year just after buying my XR....if it helps heal the pain any ? The upgrade [too] the hard bags is IMO is well worth it.

Just talked to my local dealer. They can order the OEM burgundy. By the quart. For $150.00. And the cream too, by the quart...for $150.00.
Also said he could get me some saddlebag locks for about $200 if I don't mind them being keyed differently than the ignition.
