As previously stated, DO NOT use the handlebars for any tiedowns.
Use the link Pete gave you. I trailered my LT from New Hampshire to New Jersey on my dirt bike trailer (which was a bit small for the LT, but everything went fine). The dealer even supplied the manpower to load the bike and tie it down. Since my trailer has a wood deck, I simply cut two short pieces of 2x4s and screwed them down into the trailer bed to make a "V" where the front tire goes.
I secured the tiedowns to the front forks, be careful of the fender, brake lines, etc. there's not much room there. I also used the soft ended tiedowns. Just be sure to secure the other end of the front tiedowns to a point on the trailer out toward the sides, and forward of the center of the front wheel.
For the rear, I used the side luggage attachment framework for two other (right and left) tiedowns secured out to the side of the trailer. Since both myself and the dealer guy are somewhat anal, we used a final tiedown around the rear of the rear wheel, and secured that straight back, under the back edge of the trailer to the trailer cross frame.
300+ miles at highway speed, and the LT didn't move even a half inch in any direction.
