The last two times I "laid it down" was due to a go kart cutting across in front of me (figure 8 kart races in a friends backyard) and trying to ride beyond my skill level. But, in both cases I was on the brakes and on the bike until the end. IMHO departing yourself from the bike is a big no-no, as you give up any control you have.
