This is not true. Braking will tend to make the bike stand up, but you don't have to let it. You can easily hold any bike down in a curve while braking, but it does take more countersteering to keep it down. Just another reason to practice at braking while cornering. If you do it all the time the bike will never go off it's intended line from braking. If you only do it once in a blue moon when something scares you, who knows where it will all end up?
