Do you actually use the bed rail clamps, are they strong enough?
Happy long weekend to those north of the 49th parallel!
I've used the bed rail things for hauling the DR650 around, no problems, driving hard. The bed rail things flex and stuff but they're plenty strong. If just moving 1 bike, I always put the bike in at a 45*, planting the tire in the front corner of the bed, helps for stability. But yes, those rail things are just strong enough... I would still run some tie-downs to the rear via the D-rings to stabilize if your bike's heavy. (my DR650 is about 320lbs)
