Multistrada head-stem bearing replacement

Q: What’s better that riding your bike?
A: working on your bike? (C’mon you can’t stay in bed forever…)
My current work includes replacing the head stem bearings, and here are some of the pictures:
1. Take off the fairings

3. Hang the front end so you can get to the head stem

4. Change that setup and hang from the ceiling…

5. Take off the front wheel and the steering unit

6. Observe how rusty are your bearings and wonder why ( not admit that it was because of the way you ride through everything…)
