We rode my '09 Uly XT. It did well on the gravel roads of our "scenic" ride, except for the tire puncture on my 60%-used Strada. Some of the roads are "graveled" with flint chunks, which is plentiful and turns out can be quite sharp. Was hoping to get my Scorpion Trail on before the ride, but obviously didn't.
Anyway, about 120 miles of gravel roads over roughly 7 hours. Very scenic. 95% of the bikes were light enduro types, plus a couple heavy KTM's, BMW's, Versys, etc. and a Uly X.
Hope you enjoy the pics.
