OH YES, it would be very hard to bend forks. More then anything you would twist your lower triple clamp outta alinement. I have seen someone before who had bent conventional fork on older CR250, but never seen someone ith USP type forks bent..... :D

Go find the video of Travis Pastrana doing a backflip. He jumped off and let the bike land on the forks. It bent the fender but other than that no harm done. He did ride the bike after the flip.
