I'll suggest that the tractor engine noise reflects off of the face shield when the mic is pointed at your lips, sort of like a motorcycle engine will reflect off of a newly install windshield & then the customer asks "why is my engine so noisey"?
Your voice was clearest in test #1 and engine noise was very reasonable to my ears.
The final test was a fair mix, but I don't know which direction your foam shielded mic was pointed.
The motorcycle engines are below your lap, but the fairing of the KLR will reflect engine noise to your face. The motorcycle exhaust being be on the RH rear may never be very clearly received by the LH front mic position.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
