I'm pretty sure all that gravel is more than 18 years old. Therefore legal...

Default Gravel

My Grandfather used to coat the alley with used engine oil and dirt/gravel. Common up here to have streets coated with oil and then a layer of granite chips. Until they sweep up the chips its pretty dicey.

I did not see the OP as it was deleted. It would be a fine gem based on the rest of the people flaming this kid.

July race weekend(?) there was a 8 mile stretch of "fresh oil and loose gravel" and yes, that is normal.

As long as it has the proper signs, its legal

I read like 10 posts between the three links and realized the other 18 pages would be like wasting my time.

I fvcking hate seeing loose gravel where it shouldn't be , not b/c I'm concerned about wiping out , but b/c it can mess up your bike's paint or worse , puncture the oil filter . The rural area around my home is notorious for stoney surprises as you're enjoying a nice ride in the country , due to the many concrete companies and home builders around . It's such a hillbilly area that even the road shoulders are still gravel ; this is 1912 after all . Yet our property taxes are as high as the cities nearby .

Pics worth seeing for those who have better things to do than read that idiotic crap. I on the other hand have lots of free time!









This is just a few. And I thought Zilla was a tough crowd.

Pussies.

Get out on an enduro bike a few times and you will be surprised how easily you can ride on gravel with road tires.

The foreman at the shop has been riding since the dawn of time. One day we were out enjoying some backroads and came up on some gravel that had been drug into the road. Myself and another rider checked up a bit to change our line and go around it, but the foreman plows straight thru it, getting his VFR sideways enough to impress a flat tracker.

at our Next stop I commented "you had a little moment on that gravel, Bob."
He just looked at me and said "well somebody's gotta get it off the road!"
