I pretty much never have rotors turned, only because they're so cheap to buy new. Turning them takes away heat dissipating material (although making them slightly lighter), thus making them more prone to warpage that one time you actually do have to stand on them. (Deer and bear don't stop for you around here.)

That does look pretty crappy, though... might be a good idea to spray them with WD-40 once a week or something to keep that from happening.. As soon as you touch the brakes, the lube will burn off and you'll have braking power.
