I know you're asking the OP, but I have had lots of experience repairing personal and friend's fiberglass that shatters upon impact. Airtech comes to mind the quickest as a chronic case, but the Chinese and low-end glass manufacturers also have this problem.

High-end resins, high-end and proper weave fabric, and a clean process make the difference between durable and often repairable fiberglass vs the ones that explode upon impact.

I'll out now...

I don't know many motorcycle salvage around houston, but I guess I could look around for a few days. Would calling them up work or is it more of a might as well go down there, since they wont have a clue?
find them online, several salvage yards across the country

Not a whole lot, admittedly. I have only used inexpensive fiber glass replacement on previously wrecked bikes I've purchased in the past when I was poor(er) but still had a passion for riding. Needless to say, I often rode outside of my skill level back then because I enjoyed the rush and wrecked a few of those bikes.
