Lack of pay?
After the Indy Mile,yamaha US factory rider Kenny Roberts got off and famously said, “They don’t pay me enough to ride that thing.” “That’s typical Kenny Roberts! But he rode it – they didn’t pay him enough to ride it, but he rode it!” Abrams says, laughing. “Oh, it was great. I mean, there was no competition for them. It was a little harder to ride – you had to be a good rider to ride it. Have you seen Kenny’s ride on the internet?that ride was in 2009, not that long ago.”
