We carried our side bags to the garage, but left our trunks in the room. I outside with the bikes while Hubby retrieved the trunks from the room. The hotel clerk came outside at one point, looked at me, then said, "You are from the United States, no?" When I told him yes, he said, "Then where are the Harleys?" Apparently most Europeans assume all Americans ride Harleys. We'd gotten similar comments a few time during our bike week.

How can one not love a lake surrounded by mountains? They were big mountains, too. In the next few shots you can see how the mountains tower over the town.
Although Rive del Garda is in the Trentino-Alto Adige Region (the area with that Bavarian feel that I loved), it was distinctly Italian in architecture. Some of the buildings even had that WWII look about them, which I think is just because the stucco on some of the buildings was falling off.
For the most part, the buildings in Riva del Garda were pretty well-kept. But there were a couple that had that pock-marked look.
Not that I am complaining. I'd still go back in a heartbeat!
The light was just right as I strolled around early Friday morning.
Don't you just love the looks of this waterfront?
There were even lots of motorcycles and scooters around. Check out these two bikes, which I spotted outside of a motorbike dealership in town.
I'd never seen such a thing. Seatless motorcycles?
It was Hubby who told me they were trials bikes.
I think Fuzzy should add one of these to her arsenal, what do you all think?
There were quite a few scooters there, too.
So what do you think? Could you stand a few days in and around this cute little place?
