You have to take at least 2 now IIRC.

But they are a great unit, survivable, have great fire-power AND half decent in combat. I really like Attack Bikes and i'm planning on making an army based around them.

I was wondering, i've been out of the loop and only have the old codex. Why do you have to take two?

To boost their sales of course !

Maybe, GW also thought that a single Bike, having similar specs to the basic Speeder, yet maybe a eany tiny bit survivable and much easier to conceal from enemies' Lines of Sight, was far too good to be fielded singly. Thus, minimum of 2 Attack Bikes.

well...IIRC, you can take just one attached to a normal bike squad....but, yeah, attack bike squads have to be at least 2, now. That's fine with me, really, two multimeltas shooting the landraider from 8" away are better than one!

2 regular bikes are ok but 2 attack bikes would be better. It's twice the amount of firepower and very resialnt.

ya i saw an army somewhere that was practically completely all Assault Bikes with a few Landspeeders. First of all, it was the sickest SM army i've ever seen. second of all, the amount of firepower was able to own the orc force that outnumbered him 4 to 1. Only one of the ork squads got into close combat, and after that was finished they just obliterated the squad.
Attack Bikes = F'ing AWESOME!!!
