So it seems White Scars grav spamming biker armies are very strong and can handle other popular internet meta lists. Bikexander is the White Scars Chapter Master mounted on a bike with the Shield Eternal, artificer armor and either a power fist or thunderhammer plus and auspex. So you are looking at 250-255 points to field Bikexander. I prefer the thunderhammer since it's concussive and there are lots of flying monstrous creatures (FMCs) roaming enemy air space.
Update (11/3/13) - I had a 3000 point game with my Sons of Horus versus a double FOC allied Space Marine army featuring Imperial Fists, Space Wolves and White Scars... Two Bikexanders and two Thunderlords with all the trimmings. Towards the end of the game I had waxed all four of the big baddies but unfortunately lost my last scoring model to a sniping TFC. Very close game and it's been awhile since my last game so I made a few silly mistakes such as not protecting the rear armor of my Contemptor dreadnaught. The Contemptor could have been a game changer if he had survived another turn... Oh well that's how you learn.
I think you need weight of AP2 melee attacks to handle Bikexander so I'm not too worried about them... Or just shoot the crap out of them.
