Let's talk about cars for a second. Certain ones are more likely to draw attention than others. The same applies to bikes. And while that all-over logoed, team-painted, super-exotic carbon fiber race machine may look fast standing still, it's also going to draw the attention of would-be racers (who are going to be convinced you're fast and try to smoke you) as well as would-be thieves. Sometimes it's good to be less conspicuous.
