If the physics simulation is correct then you shouldn't need a button to save any crashes that are actually savable?
It's definitely not an important issue, but technically MCF is correct. MM is able to save a lot of situations where he is losing the front wheel, due to leaning his body even more to the inside, pushing his knee of the ground and steering to the inside of the corner (standing the bike up). He does all this with admirable reaction time and therefore often enough is able to save the bike from lowsiding. But he does not manage always, because you can only do this when the bike is still on the brink of losing the front and only if the tire can regain traction if lean-angle is reduced rather quickly. But within those Parameters, if a "save" button would do exactly what MM is doing, it might even make sense to have it and would actually be realistic the bike could be saved from time to time. Only gripe I see is that someone might be button mashing "just in case". So the virtual rider would really need to lean to the inside even more, steer to the inside and stand the bike up in a way that would make you run wide. So button mashing would let you run wide and would slow you down considerably. Then it would even make sense.
For the MM Button I would reckon a cooldown time of like 1,5 or 2 sec. and for the fact that we can not feel the virtual bike just as in real life, I guess this leads to beeing a very rare thing and how it should be
