Anybody blow a fork seal on thier MV yet?

I've been doing wheelies a bit lately, and have had a couple come down a little harsher than expected. I know on my R6, if I came down hard once or twice...I was done, and would have a fork seal blown.

Considering these forks are nearly twice the size, I'm guessing they're pretty beefy, as the front end on this bike is overbuilt. Anybody have an experience in the area? Have I just been lucky and the seals are just as fragile as they are on other bikes, or are they just as beefy as the forks are in relation to thier size?

i'm no wheelie expert, but i've done a few (and seem to keep doing more!) and have had a couple of crash landings.

so far, no problems at all. but i'll keep an eye out for it.

next question - what kind of bearings are in the head tube? tapered rollers or ball-and-cage?
