I'm trying to rewire my 106 and i need to know where to put the main ground wire and the one that goes up toward the regulator.

Does the little wire up front have to touch the regulator?

As long as it has a common ground through the frame and other metal parts. The wiring diagram is showing them connected because of it being a diagram. If you have a good heavy gauge ground going to the frame is usually enough but like Rick mentioned it is a good practice to also have another ground running to the engine. Even though the engine is usually mounted directly to the frame there are times where it doesn't get a good ground. Whether it would be due to paint, corrosion or dirt.
