Trailering a GSXR

I will be trailering my bike to Texas this summer. I just purchased a 5x10 fully enclosed Haulmark trailer. I would like to hear some recommendations on tie-down for the trip.

The rig I came up with is to use the passenger pegs as a hardpoint for tiedown forward of the bike. The rear wheel has a strap running through it and tied to the rear of the trailer to hold the rear of the bike down and keep it from fish-tailing. It seems pretty stable, and the suspension is not compressed. I will use a couple of straps to anchor from the top of the trailer as a safety measure in case a side strap lets loose.

Ideas are welcomed.

Keep in mind that the passenger pegs are designed to carry a few hundred pounds in a downward direction, not four hundred being tossed around by potholes. Make sure they're not cast aluminum or some other cheap metal that will give way.

I prefer to strap to handlebars and frame members, but I'm not really familiar with your bike.
