Kinda tough to find your images... I suggest making albums for each thing you want to post about.
I did find them and without going down to look at our bikes I would say a skid plate would have prevented this. The plastic one from the factory is minimal at best.
I don't have them on our bikes but we seldom go into areas where there are sticks, logs or rocks that could do that type of damage.
Granted this could happen on the street with the right debris on the road but if you are going to ride in the woods you need better protection for the bottom of the bike.
