phile00 Dude, looks like you've never waxed it! Get a base grind, what that doesn't smooth out have a shop use p-tex, from there obviously wax it. You should be good to go.

MistahTaki Even if you wax it the scratches will just get filled up with wax and slow you down. As mentioned above, you should get a base grind. It'll be impossible to fill in every scratch w/ ptex.

extra0 I don't worry about scratches that run parallel to the edges (tip to tail) - they just act more like a heavy stone grind (get rid of any little dangly hairs though).

It's the perpendicular (edge to edge) scratches that slow you down. I fill the deeper ones with p-tex, even if they aren't core shots (or you can get a base grind...hard to tell with you graphics, but your base looks pretty thrashed).
