Maybe I'm off base but my instructor told me that the contact patch decreases with the amount of lean angle. Is this incorrect or am I misreading your note as sarcasm?

I agree with your instructor...it's the concept of getting the bike upright as soon so you can so you can add additional load (read: acceleration) onto the "fat part" of the tire.

No sarcasm. Keith's article on Bands of Traction, paragraph 7.
