嗨你们好！「化了妆的说法儿」就是把一件事情说的比较好听的意思，常常用带有一点讽刺意味的情况里。One uses this expression when one is making something sound better than it is, usually for scarcastic reasons or when you're being a little passive agressive.
Hope that helps!

Hope that helps.

This was intentional personification for a humorous effect on the part of the speaker. By making it sound like the bikes are laying down as a living things do, it paints a more dramatic picture of how these bikes seem to be lounging all over the place. Hope that clears things up :)
