Default Question about Hard/Soft Saddlebags for a 2011 XR

Quick question for those in the know about a Cross Roads:
looking at trading in my Hammer on a 2011 Cross Roads - seems to be a decent deal. my question is that right now it has the leather-ish bags on it. What would be needed to swap out those out for the factory hard bags, other than the hard bags themselves? i like the look of the hard bags and the fact they lock over the leather bags.

thanks in advance!!!

you got your jesus on the dashboard, the devil's under my hood. you're takin' down to legal, i'm pulling it up to no good.
god is your co-pilot, i let satan ride shotgun, you pay a toll to get to heaven, but on the road to hell there's none..... \m/ \m/

go to victory parts finish and look at the parts list to see if the mounting is the same on both bags. Fill in the blanks and look

Are they Victory leather bags? There was a soft set of bags and a leather wrapped hard style, if it has the leather wrapped ones then the mounts should be the same, you would just need the hard bags to go in there.

Yep. Same mounts. Make sure you get the hinges, latches, and keys with the new hard bags. Might want to lay down some heat shielding in the bottom or under the bags to keep things in the bags from getting too hot.

Those share the same mounts with the hardbags.

I had soft leather bags on my Kawasaki Vulcan and we traveled on it for 3 or more years. Never had locks and nobody seemed to have ever messed with them. I now have the XCT and even the previous bike a Yamaha Venture we didnt lock bags much. I lock the trunk, but mostly because we put the Senas in there GPS maybe a phone while its charging. Saddle bags usually get rain gear, bungees etc. Now if purely looks of the hard bags......

2013 XCT added Jan 2015
pull back bars, passenger arm rests, HID Low beam, Silverstar Ultra headlight high beam,Drag Specialties Pillow Top seat with driver backrest. Glasspack mod Mufflers.

Only a fool would fuck with someones bike.
Anyone caught stealing from or fucking with someones bike should be dealt with in a very severe manner .

I don't have any experience with the soft bags...did the mufflers have the same rest brackets on them as the hard bags? I would imagine they did. If not, you'll want to track down a set and they're easy to find. I have two sets myself. Also, watch eBay and Craigslist as used bags pop up pretty frequently.
