I'm thinking about Adding a removable support from the bumper to the motorcycle frame. I worry about just using straps to secure the bike,

Have you done anything like that?

I assume you haven't had any trouble.

I'm sure it would be fine I just end up thinking about it all the time.

In all my strapping bikes and quads to trailers, trucks and racks, I have never had any strap problems. Nor have I ever lost a shock seal on anything.
When tie downs are starting to look a little ratty, replace them......

I don't think there is anything better. It's no fun seeing your bike swing back and forth on some of those trails.
tie downs on the handlebars and one over the rear wheel, couple of wheel tie downs front and rear like these http://store.rampconnection.com/product.php?xProd=6911 and we are good to go......
