It sounds like minor damage to your machine but what about damage to the human occupant?

human occupant ok bruised ego more than anything. my concern was more of the damage and if it was catastrophic.

It sure does not sound catastrophic. You may only need to rotate some stuff on the steering shaft so that the handlebars are straight again. Do check the tie rods though to ensure that those didn't bend on you.

More care in the future. Stay safe
