Welcome to our 7th year of the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall! This year, we are getting more socially integrated and the Cool Wall will evolve in 2017 as well (stay tuned). For now, enjoy, vote, discuss and have fun!!
TOTAL MOTORCYCLE COOL WALL - 2017 RESULTS
WHAT ARE THE 2017 RESULTS?
This is how the voting has turned out for all models that appeared on the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall in 2017.
HOW ARE THESE FINAL RESULTS DETERMINED?
The final Total Motorcycle Cool Wall cool factor results are determined by public vote, debate and review in the Total Motorcycle Cool Wall forum. To determine the fate of a model up for placement on the TMW Motorcycle Cool Wall just vote, debate and participate in the discussion.
Here's how we are improving our math. Every time you vote Awesome you are giving the bike 3 points. Cool gives 2 points, Uncool gives 1, and Fail gives zero. At the end of the voting week we will mulitply the number of votes in each category by the points for that category and then derive an average voting number, out of 3, for that bike. Finally, we will then normalize this average voting number against the maximum possible of 3 to give the bike a standing from 0 to 100. (Zero would mean 100% Fail votes while 100 would mean 100% Awesome votes.)
The standardization of all bikes to a scale of 0 to 100 will now give the opportunity to rank the entire year's list of bikes for the year. And best of all, it allows each and every vote to have meaning to the tally.
Here's an example:
Awesome: 8 votes x 3 points = 24 points
Cool: 12 votes x 2 points = 24 points
Uncool: 3 votes x 1 point = 3 points
Fail: 2 votes x 0 points = 0 points
Sum total: 51 points
Total number of votes: 25
Average points per vote: 51/25 = 2.04
Standardized to a maximum of 3 points: 2.04/3 x 100 = 68
...Therefore, this bike ranks a Coolwall Factor of 68!
Yeah, we know, the math looks a bit complicated, so if you don't care to figure it out then just remember - EVERY VOTE COUNTS - so get voting!
See our Total Motorcycle Cool Wall Page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyclecoolwall.htm for the ranking of all the bikes that have appeared on the Motorcycle Cool Wall.
REMEMBER: New models are placed on the TMW Cool Wall every Friday!
