Just purchased a TBird after owning ( still do ) an America. I have done a fair bit of gravel on the America and only a little bit on the TB. So far the TB feels more stable at low speeds so would assume it will be better at speed. My driveway is gravel ( less than 1/2 km). The only problem i have come up against is when you go from the tarmac to the gravel when pulling over. Because of the weight, you need to take a bit more care than on a Bonnie. A totally different bike and a superior riding experience on the Thunderbird. IMHO.
