Did they crash well? Seriously I see they got gooied a bit and am interested. I know you have said the lower gastank bras did their job. The front mantis head worries me as it seems to be completely composite and I wonder if it took a good knock how it would survive?

I do think they crash well. The fuel tank acts much like a Beemer pod and keeps the bike st an angle to the ground. I'm not sure what a direct impact to the mantis head would damage.
