Should gravel be avoidable, if you didnt see it???
Should you be able to handle gravel???

These are two different questions that should have two different answers ....
Is this what you meant?

If so, then you will never be able to avoid something if you can not see it. This just may mean that you must pay more attention. Yes, you should be able to handle it.

i dont think there is much you can do if you get into gravel .. even if ya see it and dont have time to adjust your ride.. your cooked.. i just see gravel on the road and fall down.. stuff happens.. some avoidable. some not.. just my 2 cents worth..

Some things are just unavoidable(unless you just dont ever ride). Im sure RacerX would tell me that the 2 crashed Ive had when cars turned left in front of me were my fault.

No you can't avoid what you can't see. Sheesh why do you think you need to wear gear. If racer x is such a good safe rider maybe he should wear speedos when he rides.

Gravel you can try to look for it but sometimes it really blends in with the road and you hit a good amount on a sharp turn there is a good chance you will lay it down. Again why you should wear gear unless you are going plan on riding under 10mph like racer x does.

I agree with you. A lot of people over ride their headlights/stopping-condition. But, should you get yourself into the situation, you should most definitely know how to get yourself out of it.

These are all silly excuse if I ever wreck I am going to say a goodlooking girl was walking by and I just didn't the car until I was on it. Women they always get ya in trouble.

Funny story I remember when I was a teenage and a friend of mine was pulling my dad's boat and I was following him in a truck of my dad's. These two goodlooking girls walked by and I looked forward and he stopped. The motor of the boat was two inches from the windshield I was going to head to mexico before my dad killed me.
