On his website, he says he loves "anything old with a motor, including motorcycles."

According to his Instagram bio, he's "always out there looking to buy antiques and anything unusual."
'American Pickers' co-star Danielle Colby says that Robbie and Mike have supported her through good and bad.
"I'm deeply appreciative that these boys listen to me when something's not right, if I feel uncomfortable, if I feel vulnerable, if I need help, if I feel unsafe, if I just need a friend. On top of that, I'm thankful that these boys set an example of acceptance and kindness in the workplace with me," Danielle wrote.
