Are our frames weak or am I just fat!?

The pictures dont really do it justice but this is the only place on my bike the powdercoating has came off.
I challenge anyone else to beat this frame damage!

It hurts at first but then you don't see it very much afterwards...

Yamakaze, I use the MSR skidplate. It is the "shovel" type. (as i have heard it referred to on here)
I dont think the aera that got hit could be covered by any skid plate. But I wouldnt have thought it would cave in like it did either.
I dont think it hurt anything other than the cosmetic look. I just hope the person i sell the bike to dosent see it!

First thing I did when I came home was look at the area on my bike that corresponds to your damaged area....My first thought was, Why would a skid plate manufacturer not extend the back end of the plate to cover that entire area? Does not make any scense to me. Mine is exposed as you implied. I think I'm gonna see my local machine shop manager next week and see if we can figure out a way to protect that area.
Thanks for the heads up....
