hope that wasn't me sounding like "check my channel I'm ace" as I am most def not and my vids are pretty lame compared to some, but I have had comments as to the engine sound of my bike so assume the audio isn't too bad! :)

Yeah the vid was good, you were suffering from lens fog, you were saying it was quite misty.

I am very new to the bike vlogs so have no idea what is good or bad other than what I watch or refuse to watch.

I think with you wanting to place a mic by the exhaust or engine you do not want to spend a fortune on it as it will get abused by road grime etc. If you have one, try a phone mic but wrap some fur around it to reduce the wind and road noise, then locate it behind the engine to again reduce wind noise

Thanks so much for this. I have a 20S and never thought of using the mic included for the GoPro. I'll post pictures as soon as I get my Pro 3.5 Adapter from GoPro.

I must have a really crap/loud helmet because I can't get rid of the wind noise :(
I am trying to use one of those lapel mics buried in foam tho.

I shoved one of those dead cat things on my mic, didn't seem to make any difference to me, maybe placing it better will help.

What bike you on? If you have a screen it may be turbulence.

I can't get enough outside noise in my helmet, don't get much exhaust. My latest video I had to increase the audio volume for bits of it. I'm wearing a GT Air and on a Street Triple R

Riding an RC8 with Caberg Stunt helmet. I can hear quite a lot of wind noise so I think its not a good helmet for vlogging. It's fine at speeds below 40mph but above gets very noisy. Can't tell if its wind going in or around the helmet.

Just bought a new flexible mic from ebay so will see how that goes. Otherwise I'll have to keep the talking to below 40mph and add music on anything above.

Depending where you perch compared to the screen may affect wind noise. Try tucking in or trying to get your head higher for comparison maybe? That'll tell you if it's turbulence or helmet.

Does your Street Triple have standard cans? My 1050 Speed Triple was very quiet on standard pipes. I get sooooo much engine noise on my V7 which sounds ace on the videos but in reality I think it is a bit too naughty so may look into some (only slightly) quieter ones.

It does. Ridden a debaffled Arrow Striple too, not much difference. My Sprint was loud, again, never really heard that either. Might pop the chin curtain out this summer.

I've been working on getting my Mic set up so it removes as much background noise as possible and with a combination of foam covers and insulating the mic from my helmet I think I have quite a good sound quality.

I always thought it was down to mic placement and sensitivity. The lads that run Ghost Drifts have the option to set the sensitivity really low, but us GoPro lads don't have that option. C2W and SMO both have GoPro's and they manage really well with their setup. I also thought that Post production had a lot to do with it, adjusting the EQ etc. I struggle with the booming noise of wind over 60mph. I thought it was the noise of the wind around the lid that was the problem, rather than wind entering the mic.

I cut out quite a bit of noise by isolating my mic from the helmet - I was getting alot of vibration noise transfered so I mounted the mic inside a big sponge mic cover, have a look at my latest motovlogs to see if you think it's good enough

Nothing works here.... :( I tried everything!

Maybe my helmet is to noisy?
I wear a Arai Chaser V. Maybe someone else with this helmet? And good sound?

where are you mounting the mic? do you use a deadcat? what mic do you have? are you recording onto camera or voice recorder?
