= a Coolwall Factor of 42.4%

Total Motorcycle’s Take-a-way: Unique, comfy, stylish and horrendously expensive. Overall 42% Cool. Ouch. Shockingly the new 2018 Indian Roadmaster Elite finishes less than Cool than a 1/11th the cost ($3300) CCW. Ouch. I’m not sure Polaris is going to be celebrating this “Victory” anytime soon.

Best comments of the week: “Lazy Boy Recliner on wheels”; ” But I’m still gonna laugh behind my hand while I pass you on the left. You probably wont notice over the Steeley Dan blaring on the 300 watt sound system though” , “I like the idea of buying 11 other rides instead of this one. That way you could at least rent them out and make a decent income.”, “Disparaging comments by the usual suspects, check. Yep, looks like another normal week in store for the TMW Cool Wall”.
