The likely hit would be from the side, not up from the bottom. Hence transmitting the force to the upper frame fastening points. Not the bottom of the engine. For some one so "qualified" on the F800Gs surely you can understand that.
And, whatever dude. You don't know what you're talking about. BMW wouldn't have designed it like that if it would have been a problem. You're purely speculating.
Sorry for sprouting shit then...I'm deeply humbled
