If there is plenty of room for the bike as far as length, and you can tie it down with equal tension on four straps I personally wouldn't see a problem. In my opinion, securing the bike properly would matter more than the angle the bike is sitting on the deck.
Have fun in Sturgis, we've been twice and if you've never been you are in for some awesome riding.
