    Where should you attach to the bike the front and rear tie down straps to a 09 street glide when trailering? Should the bike be left on its stand? In neutral or in gear?

    I attach soft straps on the front down tubes above the crash bar and tie the rear at the floor boards.

    make sure your trailer has an enclosed front end.sand, rocks and debris thrown up by your truck can do a number on your bikes paint.

    And remember to not pull the front end all the way down, you need some travel in the front forks. If you pull the front end all the way down you could blow the fork seals.

    This is exactly how I tie down my Ultra. I use a Baxley trailer, which is the easiest to load I've ever used, and 4 soft straps, and 4 ratchet tie downs. Whatever you do, avoid tying down to the handlebars.
