Given the massive popularity of and Harley-Davidson’s success within the MotoAmerica King of the Baggers race series, it was only a matter of time before Milwaukee threw down a tribute cruiser to celebrate last year’s championship-winning racebikes. And here it is; leading the CVO lineup for 2024 is the new CVO Road Glide ST, which Harley bills as “the quickest, fastest, and most-sophisticated performance bagger” the brand has ever produced. Although it’s not quite a factory racebike, the touring bike comes dang close, with key features like the Milwaukee-Eight 121 High Output V-twin engine, fully adjustable suspension, premium Brembo braking components, and electronically controlled ride modes.

The 2024 CVO Road Glide ST flaunts its aggressive West Coast style with a deep solo seat and 6-inch riser paired with a moto handlebar that plants the rider in an attack position. The bike is available in two premium finishes; this one is called Golden White Pearl.

With the ST designation already hinting at the CVO Road Glide ST’s performance intent, its placement in the CVO series allows this bike to also channel much of 2023′s CVO Road Glide overhaul, including a more powerful version of the Milwaukee-Eight 121 engine, electronic rider aids, and that new, more aggressive styling.

And since the CVO series is meant to showcase the best-in-class performance, paint, and parts—and 2024 is also the 25th anniversary of said series—H-D decided to throw the kitchen sink at this machine, with everything from premium color to exotic carbon fiber finishes, while mixing in a few cues from the King of the Baggers racebikes for good measure. That includes a Screamin’ Eagle graphic on the fairing sides and fuel tank, while CVO 25th Anniversary graphics celebrate the series’ milestone run.

Although Harley’s Factory Team Road Glide motorcycles are powered by modified Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight 131 Performance Crate engines, the 121 mill is no slouch, especially in the High Output version seen here on the 2024 CVO Road Glide ST (exclusive to this bike). For instance, it adds a high-performance camshaft, a high-performance air intake, and an increased 5,900 rpm redline that combines to produce a claimed 127 hp and 145 lb.-ft. of torque—”the most horsepower and torque yet from a factory-installed engine in a production Harley-Davidson motorcycle” says Harley. A low final drive ratio is said to enhance acceleration performance in every gear, while selectable ride modes—Road, Sport, Track, Track Plus, Rain, and multiple Custom modes—electronically control the performance characteristics of the motorcycle.

Fully adjustable front and rear suspension includes inverted 47mm Showa 1x1 fork and adjustable Showa rear shocks with remote reservoirs.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.
