not sure what the point is with the video ? he's just balancing the bike from a different point. if he lets go at any point (at that speed) other than with the bars at full lock, it will fall. the bars at full lock are acting as set inputs.

lean angle is just part of the recipe. it goes along with (and changes) as the speed does. they're all working together, and influence each other.

or maybe i missed something again ? :)
