the adrenaline will take over if you are going the bail route.. your jump height doesnt have to be that high at all. with a 1 foot jump, and tucking everything in, you have added another foot or two. so potentially you could have 2 to 3 feet or more on that jump.

not saying its going to happen this way but just the jump with NO TIME/SPEED factored in to should have plenty of potential clearance.

hit the brakes hard and right before impact just let go of the grips. so you fly hands first instead of the bike bucking you
its safer to fear those things that might do bodily harm; I say it's safer to own those things that might to bodily harm and use them to keep you safer.

I'm always checking my mirrors when I'm stopped for cars coming from behind. I think I could jump faster than I could get out of the way. So I'm always ready to jump. Sounds stupid and paranoid, but I was hit on my first street bike from behind at 10 MPH once and it hurt. I had on a school backback with books, which didn't help the rolling into the windshield manueuver.
Faster and Faster, Slowly! BRAWP it like its hot, BRAWP it like its hot.
