Hey HS, I completely agree with you. First thing I'll do to my bike is remove the darn 'honda' letters on the rear fender, as well as any other hideous stickers on gas tank, etc. Immediately next is your suggestion, plus the side reflectors, if they don't look perfectly integrated (they're usually just tacked on for compliance).
After that, all the white paint honda loves to put everywhere, especially the one in conspicuous places, along with the markings on the sides of the tires. A good detail would finish the initial phase of ownership.
Have a great day.
