I agree with the recent comments made. The emphasis I was making, is that most riders will "generalize" their choices or actons only based on their past experience. Their lake of training, lack of ability, lack of willingness to challenge the event, or simply lock up due to panic, and not make the bike do what it very likely can do.
Certainly, variables in traction, tires, loading are all major contributors to succesfully making the bike turn. But over all else, the rider in a very high percentage of cornering events IS the limiting factor. And in most cases the rider choses, purposely or inadvertently, to not make the bike do what it can do.
