Just my 2 cents but in general if you're riding on the street, the vibration and potential of bolts backing out is less than someone that rides or races at the track at speeds ranging from 60 - 150mph consistently.
But, of course, it still is possible for a bolt to back out from street riding so that extra sense of security of safety wiring your bolts probably will make you feel better when you ride. It is a little bit of work to do but I would say safety wire the bolts you constantly take on and off the most. For racers, they constantly have to take off the wheels, brakes, and oil filter so these would make sense for sure to have those safety wired.
If I did it to my street bike, I would do oil filter, wheels and brake bolts too.
