I do not see any jokes there, only 2 senior members suggesting the use of physical violence as a means of solving arguments, or when you get annoyed.

Yeah. p. 34 where it says:

And bikes move 12" according to their entry on p. 53. The confusing thing about the rule on page 51 does say that each unit follows the rules for infantry unless otherwise specified, but then it goes on to specify for jump infantry, the other 12" mover, but not for bikes. Pretty easy to chalk that up to typical GW writing though. The rule on page 51 does supersede the general rule on assaults though, being more specific in scope, and so we have our answer.

It's nice to have a valid answer to a valid question, though it could have done without the attitude. "But that's bollocks (because I say so with nothing to support my claim)", sarcasm, and threats of physical violence are not really helpful when looking for something solid in the rulebook for clarification.

Stop trolling or go away.

OT: Assaulting is 6" unless otherwise specified (by being cavalry/beast)

Galahad has the rules correct
The 3rd paragraph on pg 51 BRB says "except for the rule detailed in this section for each unit type, these units follow the same rules as infantry"

When moving assaulting models you "use the same rules as in the movement phase", that is; models in the way, different movement speeds, turning and facing etc. (Except terrain, as bikes under the assault section of their rules on page 53, "are not slowed by difficult terrain")
