Are you going off road? They guy that owned my GS before me did 6000 street miles with no problems at all. I did 8 hours off road the first weekend I had it and three of the four bolts vibrated out. I happened to look down while on a rough gravel road and saw that the $800+ windsheild was barely hanging on! I secured it with zip ties, called TT (great customer service), and they sent me replacements for free but I have since replace the stock pieces with locking nuts from Lowes. I do need to keep a couple of wrenches with me to make adjustments but so far no issues after many miles on rough/washboard fireroads.
