      thunderboy Welcome to GHs..

      Its too hard to remove swirls by hand...I would suggest you to get some Meguiars 105 or Meguiars Ultimate compound and a Lake country orange light cutting hand applicator..

      thunderboy, Welcome to GH.
      It is hard to remove swirls by hand so either get it done at a detailer or a friend who owns a machine polisher. Else, use a filler heavy polish like Autoglym Super Resin Polish. It will mask the swirls very well and if you top it with a good sealant or wax; the finish will stay up to 3 months.
      Drive it like you stole it and Detail it like you own it.

      thunderboy Fortunately the swirls are only moderate for you. Even otherwise your bullet can be tackled by hand as the paint is soft, but be warned that you'd need quite an elbow grease. Should not be much of a problem as you are going to attack much less area (compared to a car).

      I hand corrected swirls and scratches completely by hand with Eurow CCS pads and Meguiars M105 (w/ Orange pad) compound & M205 (w/ White Pad) Finishing Polish on my bike. It can be done

      You can do it! See the level of finish I was able to achieve on a 5 year old bike. Pics were taken prior to waxing:
