However it should be noted that they are not ‘responsible’ for organising ALL events. Please note all site staff are of BM who volunteer their time to help make BM what it is today.
The funds raised through memberships goes towards promoting the site with full-page adverts in magazines such as Bike, Performance Bikes, Ride, MCN etc as well as online advertising on Facebook and Google.
This keeps a continuous flow of new members joining the website, which would otherwise fail like previous, similar, sites.
Your subs make the site grow so please continue to contribute!
Of course there's also costs of maintaining the servers that run this site 24/7, more subs = better performance.
We meet on Sep 9th, 2013 and we're married from May 9th, 2014.
We've bought 4 motorcycles together and we are buying a home.
Very much in love, Mrs Prater, aka madeline Carter and Jimmy Prater. We lived 10 miles apart and would never meet without you.

BM was started in the summer of 2006 after over 3 years of development as an offshoot from Bike Chat.net, predominantly aimed at being a dating site. Matt is the site owner who designed BM from the ground up (as a hobby) and continues to maintain it with voluntary help from the moderators who are here to ensure forum etiquette, check profiles/photos are legit and to stop you (the members) from being spammed by malicious users.
However, over the years it has progressed into a more broader social site with members organising ride outs, meet ups, BBQs, international trips and we’re now in the 2nd year of our very own rally – started and organised by the BM Members – the K. The moderators can also help you with any site issues or queries, but please check the Help page first.
