Think about it, the less you lean the bike means you don't have to bring it back up as far before you can get hard on the gas. Some people lean it too much and in the pic you can tell he is fighting the bike. Almost like when you see people trying to lean their bike more by leaning the opposite direction of the turn.
most of that is true 95% of the time...but then again, there are those 5% that can manipulate these bikes anyhow they want and still manage to haul . (i made up those percentages of course)

If everyone rode sidecar machines this discussion about lean angles wouldn't exist. Ever see them at Isle of Man? How do you manage to recruit a sidecar rider? I think they must knock them on the head, put them in riding gear, put them on the sidecar and start the race just as the sidecar guy is coming to. He has no choice but to hang on!

Sorry for the thread jack. Just a random thought.
