Since this is a Monero stack exchange I'm not going to go too deep into what differentiates Bikercoin from Monero. However, a quick examination of their listed GitHub repository indicates that it is indeed a fork from CryptoNote.

The commit history indicates a substantial number of adjustments (including change donation) and there are currently no pull requests in place which indicate a largely solo or small team effort.

Given the overall level of activity and network effect on the back end it seems prudent to dismiss this as a simple alt-coin that doesn't add much value to the Monero ecosystem.
