Reno is a mini Las Vegas. I say 'mini' since Reno is far from being an equal to Las Vegas. It is far less impressive, and there are fewer illuminated casinos at night.
Nevertheless, it is a nice city. Moreover, I had the luck to arrive during an expo dedicated to motorbike. It was mainly about Harley Davidson and the customers that go with it. You will notice that we are far from the adventure motorbike world.
Downtown Reno is modern and enjoyable. There is a nice walk along the river.
The motorbike expo was mainly about Harley. The clientele in this market is often composed of people aged 40-60. In addition to the bike, there is a big market for accessories that seem to attract these friendly bikers.
Two friendly bikers I met leaving Reno
They were hugely impressed by my motorbike trip to Patagonia.
