I had an incident last year when I went into a corner a little too fast, with on coming traffic. I really had to beat down the impending panic and look where I wanted to go. It was give up and crash or commit myself to the maneuver. I think for most riders their nerve will give out before the tires will, unless you really over boil it. So, really, your only out in this is to commit to the curve and look where ya wanna go and you will probably make it...anything else and you are probably cooked.
We all make mistakes, but hopefully we can hold it together and escape with our ass in hand.
