That looks similar to a canyon dancer.

Those handlebar harnesses work but I prefer to just use soft ties around the handlebar. I've used soft ties for 20+ years on many different bikes and never had a problem.

currently I have several sets of ankra tie downs with soft ties built in.
Ancra 1" Integra Tie-Downs - BikeBandit.com

Loop the soft tie end over the handlebar, hoot the hook into the soft tie, secure of the other end of the tie down and then pull the bike down an inch or so into the suspension travel so that the suspension keeps everything in tension even over bumps. Don't pull the suspension down too far as that can damage the suspension if held compressed that much for extended periods.

Also tie down the rear of the bike and then checking it often (once every hour or so until you are sure the bike is steady.

I use soft ties on my forks to transport mine.

I agree with CD599. But I rarely use soft ties. My KTM straps have a built-in loop.
