Like a dummy I had my Jpegs out and the left one is really bent up. No other damage that I could see in the dark.
What are my options with the Jpeg? can I order a replacement bolt?
This should make you and other first time droppers feel better. It was posted by Pep years ago on the old Yahoo forum but still makes me laugh out loud. My thanks to Dick for digging it up from the archives.

Charles busted my gut by admitting:
Well, I only dropped it once. I pulled into the wallmart lot and came
to a stop with the front end full right, lost balance and tried to
control the fall as it went down. Many people stopped to admire the
bike in this position. Wanting to further impress them, and having
read the proper technique on how to pick it up I put my back to the
seat, hand on the handlebar, hand on the saddle bag grip, and hooked
the back of my belt onto the edge of the seat. Gave a mightly push.
My belt buckle broke, pants came down below my knees as I fell over
backwards on top of the bike. Seems I bent the rear brake pedal
too. "Are you hurt?" "Not physically, no..."
I love this guy... ;^) Pep"
