Illegal Gravel on N.E. WH Garner Road (Amboy)

Starts right when you turn onto it from N.E. Kelly Road.. There are orange signs marking the spots along the road they have thrown the gravel down.

The most dangerous is the 1st turn after the "gravity drop" --> going towards Amboy. Downhill left hand turn, possibly off-camber too.

About (4) spots where they have thrown the gravel down in various places. Just went through there 06/30/16 THURS.

Reminded of an old thread where some guy had thrown gravel and the kid called it illegal. Funny. Other forum.

It should be illegal. Cars slide on that stuff too.

This is what happens when too many politicians put their hands in the cookie jar?

"Illegal gravel" is most commonly found in the alley behind a douchey-idiot's house, specifically his garage. Typically it is supplied by the local municipality. It can sometimes, but not always also be applied or maintained by a well-meaning neighbor.

What separates "illegal gravel" from the more common "gravel" is motorcycle front wheel width in inches, multiplied by the ego of the rider plus the same riders years of experience. This number is divided by the depth of the gravel in millimeters. If the sum is a zero or a negative number it is likely the rider is also a a zero or a negative, and much like a plot on a single dimensional graph, became inverted.

Illegal gravel should not be confused with "nuisance gravel", which is commonly found in the spring on semi-maintained paved public roads, especially in twisties.
