Fitted Brembo SC pads in the front, cleaned last year's salt off it with a good wash, noted furry fasteners to be replaced with ti ones, ran it up to temp and put it away again.
Yes, I cleaned it.
There was no racing on, I'd read all the magazines and it was too cold to go for a ride.

Custard Crumble...

Repaired some cracks around the mounting points on the seat plastics.

Washed a weeks worth of road crap of it.

Kicked the tryes...OK.

Checked oil level...OK.

Cleaned & lubed the chain...

Isn’t that a sign of the end of days? Four horsemen, Tony cleaning a bike! The end is nigh, where’s my tin foil hat? Has anyone got a spare, Carl?
