Headlight question

Yesterday I hit (and killed) a bird at speed. Checked my headlight at next rest and all ok. I see that the outer cover (lens?) is some sort of plastic maybe acrylic? and wondered if anyone here has had it break from a stone or bird hit? I had thought of getting a Ventura headlight guard, but if the stock setup is tough enough I won't bother.

I installed the 3M Film headlight guard from Aerostich. Install was a pain with the compound curves but I figure it's worth the time and cost to protect the light.

Worth the investment. Using AMHP.

Thanks for the testimonials, I can add that the Ventura product is also very good; I had them on both my Concours', but they had a glass lens.
What I would like to know is if anybody here has had a break from stone etc on stock set-up. Mine is an '07 V. Thanks.
