Thanks for the reminder bump keenerkeen!
A harrowing tale indeed!
checked mine again just now, all clicked straight away @110Nm.
new tyres later this week, so new bolts to be sourced, drilled and wired...

great that you picked up on the bump..
Drilling the heads and safety wire seems to be the best option
Cheers

Just a bump to check your rear wheels again
the thread is worth the read ...

Not had this yet, but I did have an entire whell collapse hacking hard round a bend in the Forest of Dean on a sidecar outfit. Just missed the huge drop on my left.

Quite fun, at the time. Nearly died-but didn't.

THREAD BUMP

December gone I did a  lazy 1400kms on the GRiSO.
Left home with what I thought was enough tread on the tyre , tread wear indicators well below bottom top of tyre grove/tread.
Long story short 50kms north of Balina on the way back from the GC the bike had a vibration.
See pics below of my Metzler .
I googled bike shops near by and found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] who offered to fit me in straight away. Big thanks to the guys.

While waiting I couldn't remember the exact torque specs for the rear wheel so I looked up the figure care of the Ghetto and asked the guys to let me know the torque required to undo the bolts.

Some of the bolts were around 40 Nm well below what is required and well below the figure when last checked. Glad it was found in time.
New bolts to be ordered and I am thinking of drilling the heads for lock wire.

Perhaps the added wear came from the luggage weight or probably my miss calculation either way glad to tell the tale

Sorry to have a contrary opinion but I believe there are only a few reasons for the reported loose wheels, over-tensioning which has stretched the bolts (it would require a significant force to do this), defective bolts (always a possibility the way Guzzi sources parts), under-tensioning (most likely scenario) or some crap lodged between the mating surfaces of the wheel and mounting hub which has prevented the wheel from seating fully and and consequently allowed it to work loose.
The wheel bolts used are the same configuration as many cars especially European and in a former life I tightened a gazillion wheel bolts and never had one work loose.
I know a few people have had issues but replacing bolts regularly and especially lock wiring is in my opinion (and it is only that) overkill, no pun intended.
If people bother to ensure there wheel bolts are tensioned correctly and check them periodically it is highly unlikely you will have an issue.

IMO ....   drill the bolt heads  torque to spec and safety wire .....DONE
what do you have to loose ........besides  possibly  your life..
Sleep well , and enjoy the ride

Bump. Changed front tyre today ( old one was in embarrasingly well used state - tyre guys shook heads and gave me the tsk tsk look ...oh the shame) . Anyway while I had the torque wrench and other bits and pieces out checked rear studs. Have digital torque thingy so was able to check as-found torque. 3 seemed in good order (well at least > 110 static which isn't real indication I know) but one was definitely low at approx 80nm breakout to tighten. Backed off lot and re-torqued to 110. Worth the check.
