Tying down motorcycles?

Anyone tie down their bikes in the bed of their truck yet? Will the neat little moveable tie down system hold a bike or will they break? They seem a little bit weak and bendy. If not, are there any good tie downs to install in the bed that will hold a bike?

Just let me know folks, thanks much everyone!

Ive done it and works fine.... I used the D rings in the back and then the rail up front. Works just fine..

I put extra d rings in the front. I didnt want to drill out any more holes, so I just simply put them under the front bed bolts.

when i hooked up my bike the first time, i tried the cleats. i didnt like how they flexed.

it was worth the $4 for more tie downs for piece of mind that my bike wont drop
