As an aircraft mechanic QA I would let these fly. There is a book that it used to regulate things like safety wire (AC43.13) and it states 7 to 11 twists per inch but the fact that you can pull over and put the kickstand down and look at the bike after as issue arises vs you know.... an airplane in flight, I really dont think it matters. Ideally you have the lowest bolt as the termination point which will then have the pigtail. The pigtails are bent back on themselves just so hands dont get stabbed. Its impressive how painful a safety wire stab can be. Think labor pains and they would be a close 2nd.....from what I have been told by the wifey....she has never been stabbed by safety wire but we do have 2 kids....so it obviously labor wasnt that painful.
