This IS good stuff to know and share.
You'll notice it most when you go directly from hard pavement to a soft gravel road. Best advice is as from posters above - relax, don't panic, and don't fight it. You sort of "smoosh" into the gravel, and the feeling at first is much different.
Find some old gravel parking lot factories on a Sunday when they are closed, and practice a bit.
Sand is another one that'll surpise you, ut basically the same advice - stay loose, go with the flow.
Make sure your riding buddy isn't directly behind you though, as stones will be a' flyin'.
