She never actually touched down, so no repairs to be done! Putting my leg out as the bike dropped straightened it back enough for me to bring the the bike to a safe stop. I was back at that corner yesterday and I'm pretty sure it was the combination of new tires, lean angle (not really that severe) and the painted line running across the road marking a railroad crossing that did me in.
I've had tires slip on road marking paint before; I swear they come out at night and polish the stuff.
