The more he gets off the seat the more upright the bike for a given speed.

More upright = more grip = more speed

He could be even faster if he hung off more!


But then I suppose he might know what he's doing... maybe

It's odd. The faster I've gotten the less I actually drag a knee. I used to be consumed with it when I first started riding the track. Not hardly now. Some people drag more than others... just depends on their riding style

I'm not the fastest guy on the track by anymeans. I am faster than lots of guys/gals that drag knee and I have NEVER dragged a knee.

+1 rarely drag a knee but lean way further than a good number of people who do.

my left side barely drags....but my right side likes to get pinned to the ground. i move it up, and the bike goes over even more, but the right side still seems to be attracted to the ground. weird.

He is still down with his weight over/low and hanging off..... see how his elbow is on his knee. Stoner lean angle is so far over he almost has no room for his leg to go out. The back section of Oak Hill, before the main straight, will teach you to ride like that. Taking those corners fast you have to hit max lean angles.
