I use these at the top end of a tie down. Past through themselves on the handle bar grips and round the top shock mounts on the rear.
On bigger bikes round the fork leg just above the bottom yoke which gives you good triangulation, much better than from the handlebars. And non damaging to paintwork.

Don't tie down on the mirrors. The switch gear will turn.. If the grips are on firm, and properly with the correct adhesive, Choke a rope loop or Quoit around the grip and anchor down on that. Open the throttle mid way so as not to put undue forces on the carb/ cable.

Ideally, the most reliable anchorage will be below the suspension, Ie. over the wheels. Although anchorage above the suspension,m if pulled tight, has the advantage of having some spring to take up slack, if any should occur.
It does look that way buts its not on the mirrors, its a proper motorbike strap that goes over the grips and one arcroos the bars to stop them comming off the grips :D
