Make a to-do list:

1. pull in clutch,
2. raise slightly on pegs with legs tightly on tank,
3. straighten up bike somewhat to increase turn radius,
4. if skilled and if possible, on clean spot make tight turn to compensate for going wide or consider off-roading shoulder. x the y = last resort.
5. feather rear brake

Hey man, some people have to learn the hard way. Or they have to be a warning to others.

Well he wasn't on Killboy's turf. When I said "local" I meant local to me.
He was shooting on 178 in NC.
