The smaller one is the Guzzi 'Large' screen and it is remarkably effective at deflecting air. It won't keep you dry needless to say but it does make the ride less tiring.I don't think Guzzi sell it in the US but most of the "good' shops carry them.

The large screen on the Griso Verde is an aftermarket item, a National Cycle 'Street Shield'. It gets bloody cold here in winter and the big screen is really good at keeping both rain and wind at bay! It's so ugly not even its mother could love it but I don't see it when I'm riding so who cares? It does effect the handling more than the small screen too.

If you were to wear heated gear (full liner and gloves), would the big windshiel be necessary for comfort?  Because yeah, it's ugly as shit with that barn door windshield on it.

No Japanese bikes advice, please. No Ducatis or HD's either.
I think you're hinting for a Norton Commando. ;-)

But since we're in MG land - Stelvio.

You have to understand where I live and where I ride. The Southern Tablelands of NSW in Oz get most of their rain in spring and autumn. Summers tend to be stinking hot and dry, winters tend to be extremely cold at night and dry. In the winter months as soon as the sun is below the horizon the temperature drops like a stone but because it tends to be very still with long periods of very high pressure as soon as the sun comes up it warms up rapidly. At 7.00AM it can be -8*C but by 10.00AMit can be 15-16*C. Since I don't tend to ride a lot early in the morning heated gear would be overkill, but a large screen is very handly,specially on longer trips in the winter. I have heated grips, (Albeit crappy Oxford ones!) and that and good gear with thermal long-johns is really all that is needed unless its snowing or pissing down with rain. If its doing either of those I'll take the bloody car!!!! Lol

Admittedly, my yellow duffle-bag (with the mesh onion bag holding a couple of water bottles) doesn't add to the lines, but the windshield isn't all that bad...

Sadly, the Griso fund has taken a major hit-my wife needs a new to her car. And I'm still out of work. Piss, etc.  Sad
