I recently saw an episode of "Two-Wheel Tuesday" where Matt Mladin was a guest. Some of the coverage showed Matt and the new business plane he just bought (he's a licensed pilot BTW). Matt said that he was wasting too much of his valuable time waiting around at the airport, so he just bought this plane so that he could fly himself to the AMA race destinations, as well as for his own personal business use.
At any rate, the plane was no rinky-dink 2-seater. It looked like it definitely cost some $$$. So, my question is, does anybody know what the salaries of some of the top AMA riders are? I know it's got to be 7 figures, and they probably get paid even more for their various endorsement deals, but I'm curious to know how much the factories pay these guys.
