I've bent a bunch of pipes so the pipe doesn't sit nicely in the cylinder flange anymore and I've bent the mounts on a the frame a few times on failed log crossings. I couldn't care less about dents but the bending always irks me. I finally built a cage for it over xmas. It's old so I couldn't get a force bashplate for it. The pipes have always been gnarly's, maybe they are more prone to bending on big hits rather than being dented.
