best way to tie down the front of the bike

Ok I ramp the bike into the back of my truck when I transport the bike. Normally I just use ratchets for the front, but I dont want to put any unecessary wear on the handlebars or grips where I am not suppose to with ratchets and because it is a ford, the clips in the bed are low so they can have a habit of sitting on the fairings and also one time it moved my grip on my bike some and the grip actually got stuck when I was accelerating and had fun fixing that one

What I wanted to know is what is the best way to go around tieing down the front of the bike in my truck, mainly the handlebar or triple tree area.

I have seen things about canyon dancers and wanted to know how well they worked of if there is a better option out there?

there are many different handlebar tie down setups available at the dealers and bike shops. Just visit your local and see what they have. They all work well, without the "yank" on the grips.
