Default Cross country tie down

So I just picked up my new 2014 cross county tour. Can anyone tell me the best places to hook up to the bike to tie it down to a trailer?

Congratulations on the CCT. They're an awesome motorcycle. Your owners manual shows you exactly where to use tie downs for a trailer.

All the best,

Safety
Transporting the Motorcycle If you must transport the motorcycle:
Use a truck or trailer. Do not tow the motorcycle with another vehicle, as towing will impair the motorcycle's steering and handling.
Position and restrain the motorcycle so it remains upright on the truck or trailer. If the motorcycle leans to one side, gasoline may leak from the fuel tank and result in a fire hazard or damage to the fin- ish.
Do not restrain the motorcycle using the handlebars.
Place tiedown straps around the fork tubes above the lower triple clamp. Place tiedowns as wide apart as possible on the truck or trailer bed for best stabil- ity.
To lower triple clamp (one tiedown each side)
To swing arm
(one tiedown each side)
