If I had bailed, I'd probably have just had a few scrapes and bruises...and I've bailed off my previous bikes in the past, so it's something that would have come naturally to me, thus I'm sure I must have thought I could save it.
If you didn't bail on the bike, either you had a malfunction, or someone pulled out/over into your lane. It's a natural reaction to bail whenever you KNOW you're going down.
