Do we have any leads as to whom may be producing aftermarket stuff like mainly side bags?

Why would you want aftermarket when the bike comes with panniers (side bags) ?

Because I really hate the clam shell design side bags. to hard to pack them. Last bike just about tore them part because of that design. Mkaes hard to park in some place then get at side bags.

Top case ?  Universal tailpack ?  Tankbag ?
Personally, I wouldn't go back to having a bike which didn't have panniers.  I find them the most useful things.

Let us know what you decide to go for and how it works out.

Well considering they detach very quickly and thus can be packed like a suit case , or with the pannier liners are easily packed ...
One thing about the Trophy panniers is that they make the bike 4" wider at the back than widest point at front of bike ... Unlike my K1200 LT where front mirrors wider than rear pannier width ... No need to explain the plus of that .... :138:

I would be interested in buying the (blue) panniers from you if you don't want them, clarge, seriously.
Let me know once you've got the bike and settled into it.

That is good to know about the width of the panniers being wider than the front.  On my GTR1400 I knew that the mirrors were exactly the width of my panniers.  I will obviously have to adjust riding style on this bike especially when lane splitting.  Not that I will be doing much of that on this behemoth.
