According to rule B.3.2.8 RHO "The forward ends of the RHO members (intersection with the CLC) define points CR and CL (Figure B-7). CLC, BLC and RHO members must all be coplanar and bends at the aft (rearward) ends of the RHO members are not permitted. When a bend is used at Point CR/CL or BR/BL these points are defined at the start of the bend on the top-most plane of the Roll Cage, shown in Figure B-11: Roll Cage, Template Installation. " there must be no bends towards the aft end of the RHO.  does this apply to bends at the midpoint of the member?  this bend is only in the horizontal direction and has no vertical change in elevation.
