That takes care of the front.

For the rear you just run the hook end of your strap to your rear sets and cinch them down to the bed of your truck.
That looks like a really good, cheap fix. The lower triple won't be too low and make it unstable?

I've never had a problem with it, especially with ratchet straps. Just dont cinch the forks all the way down and blow out the seals.

I suppose as long as I DO put those at a decent angle(IE: front lower corners of bed) then it should keep enough forward and side tension on the bike to keep it from shifting. Hopefully if I can't close the tailgate it will still keep enough tension on it from sliding backwards any.

If you're worried about the front end sliding, get a cheap removeable wheel chock. $30 or so.

Maybe I'll practice with my brother's bike first just to be safe
