Women on bikes: Female motorcyclists hit the streets

The number of women taking to the road on motorcycles in the US is on the rise.

According to the Motorcycle Industry Council there has been a 30% jump in the number of female bikers in the past decade.

As the popularity of motorcycling among women has risen, so too has the number of clubs catering to enthusiasts. One such female-only club in New York is The Miss-Fires.

Michael Maher caught up with them on a recent weekend ride.
