I spent almost ten years in Reno. Nice enough place, but it has a LOT of faults. The traffic lights are poorly timed (if timed at all), construction is rampant and NEVER ending, and the cops are all over the place generating revenue with both radar and laser. Oh and most Reno residents hate motorcycles and will actively try to run you down if it strikes their fancy.
Reno's nice features are that it's close to Tahoe, close to lots of desert trails, and no state income tax. Other than that, it's a good ole boy town.
