Chok in front of the bed. Front wheel in chok, used the cloth ratchet strap extenders (with loops on both ends), wrapped them around both forks near the bottom. Used ratchet straps on each side clicked till compressed to my satisfaction. Rear, hooked ratchet straps with the double loop cloth extenders around the rear foot rests (or race hooks) and ratchet strapped down. When you stop for gas, check to make sure you're still secure.
I used this method from Colorado to NC and back. YMMV.
