much like you guys i would really love to start motovlogging so i finally got my dream bike a 2020 iron 883 and i bought an off brand gopro{AKASO V50 Pro SE) that had good reviews to start with and the required equipment to hold it to my helmet but the channel that really got me wanting to try motovlogging was this small japanese youtuber where he rides around japanese cities on his triumph triple speed rs but he never talks you just hear his engine and the cars and city around him what audio quipment would i need to do that just travel in my videos and all you hear is the engine and other cars super clearly

hi, welcome to the forum.
To record audio without wind noise of the bike and surrounding ambient noises you'd need an audio recorder. Ideally one that has a minimum of 2 mics and a deadcat. Even more ideal would be one that allows multiple inputs so you could record the engine and the ambient sounds separately allowing you to use a mixer to set the volumes of each to how you want them.
I can't suggest any unfortunately as all my audio is normally in helmet.

Hi and welcome!

I have started to use 3 mic's in my videos and then mix/sync audio during editing... one in my helmet which is connected to my helmet cam and this is the primary sound track and has little wind noise. One mic on my rear facing camera which picks up my bike exhaust noise clearly without any wind noise as it's in a sheltered location and then another on the screen pointing back, which picks up a little wind but mostly ambient noise. I rarely include the 3rd one in the mix.

Also, if you do plan to use more than one mic you need to create a visual, or audio slate - a cue that you can use to synchronize all of your audio tracks so they'll play together at the same time. If you're just recording sound, turn all of your audio recorders/mics on, and then give a quick beep with your horn. Later when you're editing your different tracks line then all up to the audio beep in your editing timeline. Boom - everything's in synch now.
