A few weeks ago I saw an article by Yareah Magazine about Rob being a philanthropist. And I giggled to myself about this:
“And in May 2014, he donated his bike for an Auction to Benefit the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS), who provide primary healthcare services to the people living in the outback.”
Remember when we posted about Rob donating his Trek bike to the @RoyalFlyingDoc to help raise money? I never told anyone that I had an interesting email from a really good friend of mine when she read about it that said something along the lines of “I better get onto that”. I, of course, stupidly thought she was kidding. Anyway, I shouldn’t have been surprised that when we posted that Rob’s bike helped raise $7,600 I then got an email that said “you know that was me right”. Bwah! Of course she bought the bike. I don’t know why I even doubted that she wouldn’t attempt to get it. I’ve been waiting patiently for the bike to be reassembled and, let’s call her Rob’s Benefactor since she would like to retain her anonymity, to send me the pics which I finally have. “Rob’s Benefactor” also put this little interview together for us, so I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did:
RPAU’s Interview with Rob’s Bike
RPAU: Hey, it’s great to see you again.
Rob’s Bike (RB) : The pleasure is all mine. Thanks for taking an interest in me.
RPAU: As you’re no doubt aware, Rob has a few fans out there. We know they’d be interested in a quick update from His Bike. So, how have you been?
RB: I’ve been great. I miss Rob, of course. It’s been nearly two years since we parted company, but not a day goes by when I don’t think about him and all the fun we had together.
RPAU: We can imagine.
RB: Luckily for Rob, my lips are sealed. I think that’s what he loved most about me. I was a very quiet companion, so he could get lost in his thoughts when he was with me.
