I have strapped to the bottom triple clamp before in a pinch, just get the geometry right and don't tighten them too much.

Everybody's fault tolerance level is different. With a pair of straps, if one works loose, the other side goes slack too. So you really only have ONE strap holding down the bike.

Tiedowns are cheap. Bike is not. My $.02

I go around the fork just above the lower triple clamp on every bike I can. Much more stable than the handlebars and you don't have to compress the suspension as much.
