My FLHTCU came with the stock brackets. I tow the bike on an open trailer with a Tractor Supply chock on the front. The tie down eyes on the trailer are about four or five inches in front of the front tire and about 15 inches from the bike's centerline. I use a pair of cam straps to pull the front of the bike down as far as I can and tie the passenger footrests to another set of eyes with cam straps. In five or six thousand miles I've never had anything shift even a little. My system is not very sophisticated but seems to work. The brackets on the bike are a lot better than soft straps on the bars.
