I can understand that completely.
But when you lower a bike you not only decrease your lean angle, which will prevent you from going into a corner as hard as you could before, but you also change the center of gravity which can make for some unpredictable handling.
What's more, if you lower the bike without extensively re-working the suspension, you pretty much gut any comfort the bike was capable of having by limiting its travel and changing the preload on it. You can also find yourself bottoming out the front suspension under heavy breaking which, well, we all know how that ends.
There's a whole lot to consider when you lower a bike. I've never in my life though seen someone lower a bike 2 inches and talk about how it handles better in corners. Ever.
