Looking to add a lockable top case/trunk to my 900 ltd

Just picked up a very cherry 09 900 ltd here is hawaii, love the bike--and the forum btw. Have added a cobra luggage rack-(along with kuryakyn pegs, baron engine guard, wolo airhorn, kurin sm-3 for running lights/brakes)
My last bike was an older full touring package suzuki. kidnda got used to a place to lock up my helmet(s)

I am looking to add a lockable top case or trunk that can hold two helmets. Looking for any suggestions on a good product-willing to spend for a good product that would work with or replace the cobra sissybar/luggage rack.(but im not also VERY open to less expensive but works options too!!)..so any suggestions from the vulcan (live long and prosper!) community?
Oh- I do ride 2 up (the mrs of over 21 yrs) on weekends and occasional eveings.

I have a mutazu. By the time I bought it and had it painted to match, had a little over $300 in it. It locks, does what I wanted. There are more expensive trunks out there that probably have a prettier fit and finish. The one I had was a snug fit for my modular helmet, though. Another one is something like Tsuyaki??? I'm positive I just misspelled that. Maybe someone will correct me.

I bought Mutazu MU hard bags and have been pretty satisfied with them so I have been thinking about adding one of their trunks with a wrap around backrest. You can check them out here:

Can't go wrong with a Harley Tour-Pak! Mutazu, et al, sell clones that aren't too expensive. Put a Wompus rack on the bike, bolt the tour-pak to that, and your golden! That's about as big as it gets, they work great!

I got a Harley Tour Pack for $400 with the quick detach rack which I turned around and sold. Waiting for pay day to order the Wompus Rack and just need some paint.

And you can't beat all the accessories for the Harley Tour Pack.

If on a budget JCWhitney has a decent case for $49 that gets the job done.

I just picked up an old Vetter trunk off of Ebay. Has the mounts and I am mounting it to the stock Kawi luggage rack. It will hold my 3/4 helmet and jacket. I'm trying to engineer a quick mounting system so I can use it only when needed. It is fairly large but I think it will work really well.
