Normally, unless you're using a Canyon Dancer or similar contraption, people suggest putting the single straps through the triple tree under the bodywork. Before I got my Canyon-dancer-like device, this is what I did and it worked great EXCEPT once I had the bike positioned differently, didn't notice that the strap was pressuring the bodywork and ended up with a few fine cracks.
I tend to prefer my front straps to actually extend out from the front to "pull" the bike forward. Then I use a hole on the passenger pegs to "pull" the bike backwards. This isn't as key for you since you have a front stop. Both sets of straps also "pull" the bike left and right.
The compression you have on the front is good.
