The front forks are perfectly adequate for dual sport use, they do need a fork brace for best on-road performance. As for crash resistance, I would suspect the condition of your front forks will be a secondary concern in the event of a crash, the primary concern being your various body parts. I don't know of anyone who has gone down and said, well at least my front forks did well.
