Bolt came out...what next??

So after a long ride on Sunday, i got home and noticed the chain guard plastic piece was crooked. Turns out the rear-most bolt came out. Weird!

But it got me thinking...I'm going on a week-long trip in about a month. Any suggestions for other parts to check/tighten, etc.?

This is on a 2007 DL1000

If you're worried about bolts coming loose on your trip start at one end of the bike and apply blue Loctite to every bolt that holds stuff on!

Especially the two bolts that hold the headlight fairing on.
