"High centering" is usually a term used for semi trailers that are low or a car that has been lowered to the extreme. going over raised railroad tracks or speed bump, the center of the trailer or vehicle contacts the pavement and the wheels no longer make as good of contact with the pavement. When the tires loose contact with pavement they loose traction. If you are moving when this happens you loose some control of the vehicle.

I think he is concerned with front end compresing under hard braking and the bottom of the bike hitting the ground. Most regular bikes will do a stoppie or endo, lifting the rear wheel if the front tire doesn't lock up and slide first.
