sounds like you did everything right...even if you didn't know you were doing it. One thing that I catch myself doing periodically is "crossing over" the bike in turns (body position). It's the wrong body position that unnecessarily increases lean angle, and could possibly cause the situation you described.

It's hard to describe, but you shouldn't find yourself pushing the bike down under you. If anything, your upper body should move so your helmet is centered on the bike, or moved towards the mirror on the inside of the turn.

I'm not saying that is what caused your experience, but it could have. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure....
