For those with Bike Cameras

For those of you with cameras mouted on the tank I had a quick question:

I have a tank mount for a camera on the bike. I use a sony Handycam Camera to record and it has a built in microphone. Now at 20mph it records great but at freeway speeds the wind noise is horrible, how would I kill that wind noise??

I know its impossible to eliminate all of it but if I can tone it down and get the sounds of the exhaust or engine or other bikes it would be a lot better than wind noise!!

Any suggestions?? The camera does not support a remote microphone - fyi

If you download to your pc you can use the movie maker to tone it down, also mount more in side the windscren helps.

Its as far as it will go with also being able to see the speedo. I tried toning the volume down but everything gets tone down with it. Not just the wind noise!!

The image is fine, its the wind noise on the microphone thats the problem. Also has anyone recorded with a dark smoke DB windscreen on before??
