The Horus Heresy novels about these guys had me thinking about this list. Never mind that there's very little traditional White Scar warfare in those books, since they're fleet-borne most of the time between Chondax and Terra, and their most significant actions are space station invasions. But they're among the best of the HH novels - highly recommended!

Anyway, I was thinking that an all-Attack Bike formation would be smaller (4-5), so maybe that'd be a reasonable new formation for this list and we could keep Bikes at 8 stands. But... I can't see how that would compete with Land Speeders. It's the first time I've noticed that taking 5 Attack Bikes in a Codex Astartes list is a silly idea.

Another idea would be to expand the options on their Land Speeders, maybe to match those available on the Defeat in Detail
Anti-Tank Skimmer (TL lascannons?). They would be used pretty differently from the normal Speeders, I think.

Or replace Scouts with Scout Bikers. Formation of 4, gets Scout and Walker, maybe one of them has a plasmagun or something beyond small arms, and they have worse CC/FF than normal bikes.

I'm actually pretty happy with the big bike formations and Vindicators that can keep up.
