if you're hauling the bike on the back of a truck wont the straps come loose if the suspension compresses from any bump on the road? also just like beast said its better if you have something in the rear. that way theres pressure in the front and rear of the bike to prevent it from moving too much.

when we haul my uncle's bike we compress front forks with rachet straps. sometimes we tie the back if the tail gate won't shut. of course 4 straps would be better if you have them. have run two with no problems. just sayin'

made the trip today with no problems -- pulled the straps in the frount good and tight
and used one ratchet strap through back wheel to each tie down in bed pulled tight

was the longest 10 miles (round trip) I can remember was very happy when bike was back in the stable and safe
