Ratcheting cargo straps from the towing/trailer section in Walmart are the normal way to go.
When I bought my first Vstar 650 I asked the previous owner what he thought would be the best way to get it to my house, 15 miles away. He still had plates and insurance on the bike, and he offered to ride it to my house with his plates, and I drove him back home in my car. Was a good chance to chat with him about the bike and other things.
My Royal Star I paid for the bike, got the paper work, registered and insured, and then drove it home from his house with my new plates on the bike.
The Uhaul motorcycle trailers work very well too.
