Make sure the battery isn't the kind that leaks either. Oil, fuel, and acid SHOULD be the only concerns with laying a bike over. My DR's battery doesn't leak when sideways though, and I believe it's stock.
Test your brakes before hitting the road afterwards too. Basically, T-CLOCS (MSF pre-ride checklist).
