Welcome to BikerMatch (BM)!
BM was started in the summer of 2006 after over 3 years of development as an
offshoot from BikeChat.net, predominantly aimed at being a dating site.
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.I.S.S Rally (Keep It Simple, Stupid!)
7 years down the line now and we have 60,000+ members, 2 million page views per
month, over 1,000 events per year, millions of forum posts & chatroom messages
plus around 3,000-5,000 people logging on and 100 new members joining every
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. The moderators can also help you
with any site issues or queries, but please check the
Help page first.
There are also voluntary events co-ordinators for most areas of the United
Kingdom who are there to help you if you wish to set up an event/meet up/ride
out. However it should be noted that they are not ‘responsible’ for organising
ALL events. This is your site, you make it happen.
Please note all site staff are members of BM who volunteer their time to
help make BM what it is today. They usually have a proven track record of
helping other BM members (aka 'BMers') and have shown special dedication to the site.
There is also an events calendar, so if you want to add
any events, then follow the instructions in the
calendar or send us an email.
BM is largely free to use. You can create a profile, upload photos,
respond to Private Messages, check our forums, join our events etc completely
FREE of charge. You can also opt to upgrade your account, removing
adverts from the site and allowing a few extra features.
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. BM is NOT a large corporate
site run by faceless gremlins - we're a site run by bikers for bikers.
Even Matt has his own day-job and runs BM in his spare time.
We hope that you enjoy your time here. It's been said many times that you get out of BM what you put
in! So join in with the forums & attend some
events/meet ups/ride outs. You’ll soon make
loads of friends and may even meet that special someone in the process! Bonus!
