For a lighter motorcycle(less than 350-450lbs), which one would you suggest or something better as a floor tie-down option?

Multiple reviews suggest people have successfully used for motorcycles:

I have one of those 4X8 folding trailers from Harbor Freight. I use to ride motorcycles, the last one being an Aprilia Shiver 750. I installed 4 forged eye bolts, one on each corner lined up so when the trailer is folded, I can lock it folded. The bolts say something crazy like 2200 pounds or something. They have securely held that piece of junk always in the shop waiting on parts Aprilia a few times when I had it. I do have a 1/4" plate you cant see that reinforces each bolt.

^^ This. Cheap, efficient, and way stronger than any D-ring. Measure, drill hole, tighten. Done.
