I recently rode mine along with a group of Vincents and Nortons on a 30 mile stretch of gravel road.
We didn't touch 120 mph, more like 45 mph.
The Thruxton was very easy to ride , even in the loose gravel.
Afterwards the other riders were complaining about fishtailing around, one nearly wiped out.
Then I realized the traction control really helped keep the bike straight in the heaps of loose rock here and there.
Could really spoil a person.

In Aussie land there are plenty of dirt and gravel roads, the mates and myself do a lot of back road riding which in tails a few dirt/gravel roads on our rides some are long stretches, I don't mind riding on the D/G roads as the Thruxton handles it pretty good for a road bike and handle good speed, when we hit a patch I always leave my mates behind and let them eat my dust lol.
