My 1999 Trophy 900. It has 42k on it right now. I have the side cases, bag liners, factory cover. It was originally blue but some time in it's life it got painted green. The one bag decided to jump ship at 20 mph so it doesn't match as well.
Had that happen on a 99 Trophy 1200 that was custom painted with the Union Jack flag streaming off the headlight bezel and down the sides including the side cases. I had been out for a fast backroad run of about 30 miles and was pushing through the sweepers at 90-100. Parked it in the garage at my business office and walked past it several times think something was off, before I realized the right hand side case was gone. I drove that stretch of road weekly for a month going slow and looking out into the pastures on both sides, figuring it came loose at that speed it could have skipped like a flat rock on water and sailed 50 yards of more off the road. Never found it. Finally found a set of green ones on craigslist down in Georgia and bought them and had my local body guy repaint them to solid silver.
