Talk to an industrial safety supply house in your area. Tell them that you need a disposable respirator with good breathing characteristics. When I get to work tomorrow, I'll check for some brands. In the meantime, I ran a search and found a couple of sites for you to check out:
Check "Respiratory Protection" and look for a "disposable respirator" in the category area. This is a Queensland, Australia web site, so you may find something local.
What you want is a disposable respirator with two straps, a good face seal, a large filter area, and High Effeciency Particulate Filtration (HEPA). If it is stacked on an absorbant like activated charcoal, so much the better, as it will absorb some of the carbon monoxide.
I cannot tell from your photo
, but if you have a beard it will not matter much what you wear, as you won't get a good seal.
Good luck, as smoke is not fun to ride or work in.
