A reduced lean angle means not only do you have a larger contact patch, but also allows to be harder on the throttle when exiting the corner.

He is doing it right. It's the guys who just stick their knee out to scrape it, but whose head and upper body are to the outside of the corner who do it wrong.
Okay, that makes sense. I appreciate the non-argumentative lesson. Sometimes I ask questions and I sound like a judgmental moron. Usually it's just because I don't know something.
