I ride a
MT-07 Cafe Racer
Hey guys,

I'm a Brit, but have lived in Japan for 10 years. Been riding for maybe...20 years I guess. Went from a VFR400 (First bike) to all sorts of GSXR's, Ducati's, etc. but after a crash about 8 years ago I started to appreciate smaller bikes a bit more. Recently I was into KTM's but after my 690 Duke blew up I decided to buy a brand new bike for the first time. Now riding a 2018 MT-07 that I've customised a bit to look more Cafe Racer-ish.

Currently struggling with wind noise, audio recording. Only made one video so far, but I only uploaded it to youtube last week. Almost a thousand views so far. Hoping to make a mix of regular motovlog, and actual "Adventure in Japan" type videos with songs, narration etc. Have video experience, but bike videos is a first.

I don't think I'm allowed to post the link to my video yet, but after I'm allowed, I'll link it and would like to hear your opinions.

Thanks in advance

Hey @tarmacjapa nice intro :)
Regarding the audio issues, try burying the mic into the cheek-piece of your helmet, it might help a bit, it can also muffle the voice audio so will require some experimentation :)
