Shaking Bolts Loose

Does anyone else have this problem. The bolts that hold my exhaust to the frame has come out twice now as well as the bolts that hold my passenger pegs to the frame. Is this a common problem?

I've lost or found some loose but I can't remember if it was those specifically. I learned to use blue locktite.

Safety wire! drill holes, tie em down. Vtwins can vibrate a lot of stuff loose.
So can riding hard and fast.

SlowHAWK is an unknown quantity at this point
+1 on Loctite.... once you get used to remembering to use it on bolts, you won't lose another again.... although cleaning it off old threads can get annoying if you are constantly working on the bike.

Also highly recommend anti-seize compound on bolts you don't want to freeze on you.... works wonderfully on exhaust bolts/nuts and car lugnuts.
