  Many of the Durty Dabber members participate in as sport known as Observed Trials. This unique type of competition is not about pure speed but rather a careful finesse of maneuvering the motorcycle over various obstacles including natural and man-made. The participants are required to make it through a timed section racing the clock and are not allowed to put their feet down (Dab) during the run otherwise face penalties. The Durty Dabbers participate in many events around the country as well as host one here in central PA.

One way to experience several different types of riding conditions while staying on the same machine is to ride a Dual-Sport motorcycle. Central PA is home to one of the nation's largest offroad motorcycle rides: The Annual Durty Dabber Great Adventure Dual Sport.

Formed in 1979 with ten members, the Durty Dabbers today has over 100 actively participating members who organize, coordinate, assist, and ride in various dual sport and observed trials events.
