You need to use soft straps at the curve of the handle bar and make the straps go down and forward so it holds the bike to the wheel chock. Then run your rear straps as high as possible (like someone else said). The rear foot pegs are a good spot for straps, just don't make it gorilla tight. The wheel chock does most of the work, the straps just keep it steady and locked to the chock.

You can also put straps around the lower triple tree if you are afraid of scratching your bars.
That exact thing happened to me this past weekend. I realized my mirrors couldn't see anything and suspected the handlebars were bent. Took a closer look and they actually had rotated down. Straps were still tight though. Next time I'll just strap around the triple tree.
