and hopefully your "friend" is too scared to get back on

one rule ive had since i started riding was that no one else rides my bike (except my brother) and i dont ride or ask to ride anyone elses bike.

Given the curb impact and it never when down, your only real concern is fork damage (or wheel, but that's easy to spot). Like Colby said: take to speed and let go (or lightly touch) the handle bars. If there is no head shake and it tracks straight, the forks are ok. You should be able to gently guide it left and right by leaning. If it steers easy from a little weight shift there's no problem. A bent fork will make it pull to one side, or pull during front braking.

Do not attempt to straighten the lever that bent - or any metal part. It will weaken even more and if it doesn't break this time, it will soon.

I've been in your position, except my bike was demolished. The guy who wrecked it paid up, and it's better than ever - although completely custom now. Just be thoughtful who you let ride... I agree with the nevers, though.
