Thanks for the replies everyone.  I actually bought a different bike from a private seller who included an Oxford cover in the sale.  I have to say I totally love the Trophy but I'm still a little rusty on the slow speed stuff, the clutch doesn't seem to have much play so still building up my confidence with the walking pace riding.

That solution is also a possibility 😉
Congrats!

I have a Oxford cover and it does cover the bike including the panniers. I have’nt tried it with the top box. It IS very light so I always use the securing strap that goes under the bike. It isn’t waterproof as it is made of tent type material so I put a large plastic bag over the entire seat so it is dry in the morning. I tried using a hotel towel but it was soaked by morning. I use it to stop dust and grime getting into the pineapple block switches. I figure if I don ‘t then if it rains I will end up with sludge entering the blocks and damaging the switches. Maybe I’m being too cautious but we all know how much spare parts cost.

Very strange. I would take it back to the supplier. My Oxford Aquatex cover keeps the bike totally dry.

I think the Oxford Aquatex is available in two different XL models.  The CV207 for bikes with top box and CV206 without top box. But as usual, Caveat Emptor. I see one eBay seller has the XL CV207 for GBP15.

Be wary of a London based eBay Seller advertising these,
who has some Negative "Feedback" comments including
recently sending the wrong size cover more than a week
after the order was placed, and then becoming abusive towards the buyer !

I am using this one :
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WF1KB8V/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

as dust cover in the Garage (cannot speak to durability in Sun/ UV, colds or wind...)

Needed a 3XL to fit all panniers and top box.
