Muffler mounting bolt fell out.. WTF?!

Has anyone had their exhaust bolt vibrate out before? I thought I would have noticed it loose at some point when taking the seat on and off. But the other day I heard a bit more rattling than normal in the rear and I started wiggling the tail and pipes and low and behold the right can was drooping and real loose. I took the seat off and there is was... Or wasn't rather. No bolt holding the can. Number 25 on the expanded picture. I'm very surprised and disappointed this happened. No biggie. Just a $2 bolt but the fact it happened bums me out. Poor preventative maintenance checks on my part tho.

Wow, IIRC, there are quite a few threads to back out before it would fall free. Another good place for loctite.
