lean angles and speed

When leaning into a corner, how much lean is required to be fast? This guy seems to have an idea. Look at the black line he is leaving too.

From what I understand, the guy in the 1st pic made it through the turn and posted it to show it off. This pic is a shot of Buckmaster and he is at about the same lean angle more or less.

^^Those lean angles aren't even close dude...^^

The one is a low side in progress and the other is a normal turn on a superbike... you want to see lean angle look at the 250GP bikes.
