What is the most inconspicuous bike you can think of.

I am trying to find the most inconspicuous ride to work. Any ideas everyone?

Cheers!

All of them if:
not the fastest vehicle on the road
not tailgating
not riding like a jerk, giving riders a bad name
not laying on the ground
probably a Versys or a Scooter
opps

This is too easy. ANY cruiser, they all look alike! Excuse the bias!

or Honda 919 (they look very similar). Both are great to ride but very boring and generic styling.

Why? Having confidence issues?
It's funny, because I try to be as conspicuous as possible: Neon-yellow jacket, fork lights, good road position, tub of screaming monkeys on the top case...

If angst works at a biker bar, that would be a good choice.

However, it should be BLACK not RED to avoid attention.

An older "enduro" bike, like a Honda XL500, Yamaha XT500 or DT-360, preferably with a 'light' coating of dirt and scratches in the plastic.

That's not the inconspicuous way to ride it.
