In case you didn't know, my awesome friend Cristi aka ADVGoddess and I have a great motorcycle podcast called Moterrific where we chit chat about all things motorcycle related; travel, gear, maintenance, recalls, new bikes, events and more.

Cristi also wrote this killer editorial awhile ago that you must read if you missed it!

News segment on local CBS about women and riding

Earlier this week, my friend Aleks and I were contacted through our meetup group, Bay Area Moto Girls, by KPIX/CBS local news to do a news segment about the growing numbers of women riding motorcycles.

I gathered about a dozen friends who ride and we met up with everyone at the Moto Shop, where they interviewed us about why we ride, and what we ride. Unfortunately it was a really short and sweet segment, but hopefully people get the idea :)
