Being honest I have had the bike go down while making a similar turn but I did not so it was just a matter of lifting the bike back up (using my legs) on an incline and in the middle of the road. I have a particular sharp hairpin turn near me that starts flat but as soon as you get into the hairpin it ramps up very steep and then cuts back the opposite way. First ten times I tried that turn I had to walk the bike through a u turn and go another way home. Finally I got to a point that I could do it but with difficulties. Now I try it every so often when I am feeling good and ready for a challenge. It is the most difficult thing I have faced on the bike not involving other vehicles.
Glad you are alright, Mike. Sometimes we need a little reminder that we are at risk on a bike and things can get complicated in a hurry. Lesson learned I am sure and you will be better for it especially with the Julz up.
and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"

but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
