That's a pretty decent illustration Ashwin. Off camber corners are the sketchiest things for me on a bike, if only because they don't 'feel' natural.

But, yeah, it's a good idea to lean the bike into the corner, hang your body over the outside of the bike (relative to the corner) and really work on finding just the right position, where you weight your wheels enough to maintain traction around the bend.

And remember to use your brakes as little as possible!
