towing F4i?

I just got a trailer so I can haul my F4i and take longer rides. I would like to know what kind of straps you use and where you attach it. I had a flat in the mtns awhile back and a flat bed wrecker came to haul it away, he used those ratchet type straps around the front fork and put a real small crack in the fender. can I use something on the handlebars instead? and then just the passenger foot peg assembly for rear?

Thanks,

Steve

They make things that slip on your handle bars and ratchet down to avoid cracking the faring..

I think parts unlimited carrys them for 35bux...

i compress the front forks as much as possible before ratching it down..

Then i normally wrap a wratchet strap around one of the spokes on the rear wheel.. this pervents it from moving side to side.. You should be alright after that..

Thats how i strap my bike in a pickup truck..
