It's easy to see all those crashes were from improper tongue position.

I've never done the real tight cornering where I actually have to swing my body out off the bike, but it seems like some people use less body position to counterbalance outward centrifugal force and simply lean the bike more. From a physics perspective I would imagine this would lead to more outward force being applied to less patch of tire to maintain friction. If the rider swings out more and lets the bike sit slightly more upright, would that increase cornering ability? It seems likely, from a logical/physics standpoint. Similar to the red bike(I forget the make) that makes the corner in the video with the orange zx-10(after he picks up and rides away).
