I have something similar and I can categorically say that dropping it didn't
really cause a problem with the bolts. What happened was I was turning left
from a stop sign. The bike, tires and asphault were still very cold (27F
morning). I goosed it off the stop, the rear wheel went sliding and the
bike went down on the left side. Then it bounced over to the right side. I
couldn't believe I had minor damage on BOTH sides of the bike. I suspect
the left peg caught and catapulted the bike over on the other side.
I still have the pegs and I live in FL now, so no more 27F mornings.

I am considering installing a set of Hawks Products highway peg
brackets on my R1150R.
Have any of you experienced any problems with this type of bracket? In
particular, I am concerned about using the valve cover bolts for
something other than their original intended use.
