Drilling holes for bike hooks on outside wall ?

So I have a masonry exterior with little space in the house. I was considering on the wall along the fence drilling holes into the exterior to screw in hooks to hang the bikes on. Is it hard to fill these back in when I move?

Picture is not the side I'd drill just a pic of the wall I had handy

I'm a guy who doesn't like drilling masonry if it can be avoided, so this is probably biased, but how about setting a couple of posts in the ground and putting your hangers in those?

Doesn't sound safe from theft.

The hooks would have to go into the studs. Finding the studs could be tricky. I too vote for posts and and holes bored through them for a security chain. I'd go 6x6 just to have something substantial.

I would agree with the others. I would not drill into the stucco, I would want the bikes more secure, also I would want to keep them out of the weather and sun.

I would think about building a small tool shed like building for the bikes. This would keep them out of the weather, out of sight, and a nice place to hang them without drilling into your house.

I was thinking of something like this:
