I haven't experienced that, but I live in a rural enough of a place I don't get flats very often on any of my machines. But logically if you can't see what you are running over as well, I am sure you will get more. Bents are also more prone to pinch flats because there is no hope of unweighting or bunny hopping over a pothole at the last second. This is one of the reasons I said earlier that bents need wider tires, on average, than DFs riding in the same conditions.
