Yup, better to actually add some weight in the form of protection parts, i.e.: engine bars, skid plate, etc., then when the inevital becomes imminent, just bail clear of the bike and trust those items to do what they are supposed to do. Works most of the time, but can lead to some "character" marks on the bike.

Also good to do some off road skills training or practice to help reduce the frequency of the inevitable.
