What is a good attach point for the front tie downs? What I currently have is a dirt bike trailer and Ancra tie downs with S hooks on each end. The fairing gets in the way so handle bars won't work.

Same problem with my RT. I use soft nylon ratchet straps, the kind where the metal S-hook can be looped over the fork brace at the fender then hooked onto a loop near the ratchet.

You can get the same effect using a separate nylon strap with a loop at each end. I would never hook a metal S-hook to any part of the bike.

• The short straps Scot refers to can be used in conjunction with your existing straps. Like These Right Here

• I prefer to loop these over the top of the triple tree. This is a higher point and thus gives a more vertical mounted strap angle, which is "more better". Two in the front is all that's required, but for longer distances you might add two near the rear shock top mounting point, say on the luggage rack.
