Where, on the scooter, do you tie the hold down strap? Local Honda guru says not to tie to the handle bars. On my 07 SW, down very low, probably only about 9 or 10 inches from the ground, on both sides, about two thirds of the way back, is a place that looks to me like it was meant to be used as a place to which you could tie, but it does not look to me like it would give very good support from tipping over, due to it being so close to the ground. Fortunately, I have not had to tow mine, but wondered where I would tie to the scooter, if I had too. Thanks.

I'd secure the front wheel so the bike can't move forwards or backwards and put a ratchet-strap over the seat.
The strap-over-the-seat method is the way bikes are tied down on the cross-channel ferries (usually with just the side-stand down) and they survive Force 9 gales with no problems (sorry, I mentioned the ferries Smile ).

Additional straps round the grab-rails would be the third tie-down spots for me.
Triangulation is the key.*

And yes, I have trailered a few bikes in my time.
