when I bought my bike it only had one (and I got it new). I've never lost it either and it only ever gets touched winter and spring going into/coming out of storage. I guess I just make sure its good and snug and never thought about it, but thanks for making me paranoid about it now, sounds like its a common thing. Never heard of it

Only thought I might offer is that it is possible that if the seat is not properly lined up, the screw may try and seat against the flat of the shoulder near the threads You want the shoulder to pass through the hole in the seat and allow the flat under the screw head to seat. I can see it coming loose if you set the screw on the wrong flat. Its just speculation on my part, but worth a look if you're having this issue.

I have had this issue. Bought the bike a year ago and noticed during routine maintenance there was only one bolt, replaced it then a few months later the other side had disappeared so replaced it. Finally the other day fitting a servo eliminator module and discovered both sides had!
