How to safely secure your 919 while moving?

I may be moving down I10 about 300 miles to New Braunfels Texas. I have checked inside of the uhaul and they only have tie downs on the side walls, nothing in the floors. I was planning on using my rear pitbull stand and strap it to the floor but now I must rethink the process. maybe on the stand and straped to the side walls with ratchet straps. Where is the best places to strap to?
Any moving stories anyone wants to share?

+2 on riding it. The only other option I would do is in the back of a pickup.

Any chance of pulling a small trailer behind the truck? I was looking at some 4x8 and 5x8 enclosed trailers at U-Haul a couple of weeks ago. They had nice D-hooks on the front and rear corners down by the floor that would have secured a cycle good. Ended up using a cargo van that worked great but sounds like you don't need another vehilce to drive...

Thanks, it has been a while since I used a uhaul trailer. I had forgotten about them. That is the 1st option at this point. A small trailer behind the uhaul truck....

I moved mine from Miami to orlando in the back of the uhaul truck, I loaded everything up, used matresses as the divider to keep anything from falling on it, strapped it forward and behind with blankets between it and the wall. no damage done and didn't move at all

The price on the trailer was only about $18 a day and just little more if you rented it one-way. Pretty darn cheap!
