    Buffer, dremel with buff pad, your favorite polish or compound. Touch up paint. Scratches hurt but its just a bike.

    I clean the area with acetone and then cover it with refective tape cut to fit. The refective tape does two things: saftey and prevention of future damage.

    Scratches = stories

    Compare your frame colour to current car finishes then go to the dealer and buy a touch up bottle. If you're not happy after prep an touch up try some 1500 grit wet sand paper and rubbing compound and gently rub/polish down the area then clear coat with a clear touch up lacquer.

    Thanks for the advice/reply. I guess I will just leave it as part of my bike's battle scars...
