Here is what I use. Works great and not all that expensive.

Do either of you lock the mount to the bike as well?

I do not. Don't see the point since the mount is basically hardwired. I've always gotten the impression that thievery from motobikes is much worse over yonder than it is here in The States. Europeans always talk about cut cables and helmet straps when we rarely hear of such things here. In more than 200,000 miles since 2008, I have never had my bike or luggage messed with. Not even once.

I use a RAM Ball mount. I replaced the wing nut with a bolt and nut. It would be a lot of work/time to get it off the bike but I've never had anything messed with either.
