I would follow Kwthom's recommendations above and if it is the wind noise on the mic try the leather glove finger trick and see it that doesn't help. If it does you can buy wind socks made from plastic and has a hole in one side that will look better then the glove finger. If the mic doesn't fix the issue then more then likely you helmets are allowing to much wind noise past. You may want to check the size of you helmets.

He probably thought he had to test all the fingers to see which one worked the best. :D

Sorry for no update. Just got new headsets from Sierra, J & M Elites. Sierra thinks this will correct the problem. Haven't got to try them yet.

I will have to look up where I got these. But, I have a plastic thing that covers the mic almost completely allowing just enough of a hole for voice to the mic. It cuts out almost ALL wind noise. They work. And the original covers that is supposed to deflect wind noise fits over the plastic cover. There is also a product MicMuff that is a leather cover with a small hole directly over the mic.
It ain't the destination but the getting there. You are not lost until you run out of gas.
