Oh, I like.

It's very hard to go wrong with Assault Marines in a Blood Angels list. And Bikes, well, I've already told you about how useful they are.

Agreed. The problem with vassal is I keep making list. I like this for 2000.

Librarian-Bike-Most likely shield and lance or Fear the darkness.

3x Priest on bikes w/ CombI meltas
2x Priest w/ Jump Packs

10x Assault Marines
10x Assault Marines
10x Assault Marines

8x Bikes-2 Melta Guns, Sgt w/ Powerfist
8x Bikes-2 Melta Guns, Sgt w/ Powerfist
8x Bikes-2 Melta Guns, Sgt w/ Powerfist

THe Troops dont seem like much but youve got a hard hitting FNP / FC unit that can sweep eney troops off objectives. YOur bikes are tough and can spearhead the attack leading your Assault marines too clean up straglers. you can even combat squad them if needed.

I personally do not like bikes, but this is a 4th edition mindset. I have yet to try them with the 5th edition rules and the edition of a sanquinary priest.

I do however love attack bikes and happily sport full squads of attack bikes paired with biker priests.

Sanquinor is great and in your list it's pretty guaranteed his blessing will affect something you want having it. His main problem is getting him into a list with the kind of numbers to truly benefit from his +1 attack.

I think the lists main issue is going to be dealing with hordes like nids and orks. The bikes are great to out maneuver them and the assault squads should hold against them though.

I find Bikes to be an excellent, underused. And yes, Hijiri, I think we all know you like Attack Bikes at this point. :P

My only worry with this new list is how naked the 10 man assault squads are. I'd go as far as to make one five-man if it meant giving the other 2 Power Fists, among other things.
