Since my bike was new, it has had the fine microscratches that were very noticeable in direct sunlight.
Last week I decided to see if I could eliminate them without abrasives. I washed the bike, and put on a coat of Liquid Glass, which is a polish and sealer. Following the directions, I put it in the sun for a few hours to bake. Then I blew off the dust, cleaned it up and put on a second coat and baked it again. Then I put on two coats of Meguiars Ultimate and no (and I do mean no) microscratches are visible at all. I told a buddy about this and he tried it on his 2011 RG CVO and got the same results.
The black paint looks like glass now and I didn't have to buff into the clear coat. I'm sure some will come back over time but at this point all I will have to do is clean it up and put on a coat of Meguiars which I do a couple of times a year anyway.
