Bolts to tighten?

Getting ready for a longer roadtrip tomorrow and am going through checking bolts, etc. this evening. Are there any bolts that you've experienced loosening up I need to check? I'm going through the service manual for torque specs.

I do a nut and bolt check about once a month due to miles I ride. The only ones I've experienced being loose are the exhaust bolts and saddle bag support bolts. It's normally jyst a very small amount. Have fun on your ride.

I also put a loctite on loose bolts before re-tightening them.
