Outback Motortek products By Mark Carrera #188605


OUTBACK MOTORTEK IS A FAMILY business that stretches across the Atlantic Ocean and two continents; it is located in both Canada and Hun- gary. Lorry Gombos’ father’s medical equipment factory in Hungary moon- lights as a motorcycle farkle factory, churning out Lorry’s excellent designs. As a mechanical engineer and owner of the Hungarian factory, the senior Gombos oversees Ou t ba c k Motortek’s pro- duction while working closely with Lorry to pro- duce the best pos- sible product. In early 2014, Lorry and his wife Kelli took OM on the road. They created business connec- tions using a grassroots market- ing approach via their high-mileage Subaru


adorned


with a rescued dog or two and also through the inter- net marketing. As Lorry and Kelli continued to travel and promote Out- back Motortek at moto events, they developed many new friends. Lorry, a young and inspiring entre-


preneur, is focused on creating some of the best and strongest farkles for the F 800 GS, as well as Suzuki and Honda ADV bikes. Outback Motortek focuses on crash bars, skid plates and tail plates that are really meant to be beat on. The vision and mission are to produce off-road products for hard- core abuse from the toughest custom- ers. So far, some of those customers

have names like Kinga Tanajewska (onher- bike.com) and Oliver Solero (thebroken- toothproject.com). While I hope to never actually test the


crash bars and bash plates, Lorry and Kinga have done some serious and personal prod- uct testing. In a recently published YouTube clip, you can watch Lorry purposefully dropping his F 800 GS at low speed into gravel and then, if that’s not convincing


model, and it’s where Lorry and Kelli really shine. Lorry has seemingly endless reserves of positive energy combined with an infec- tious, never-ending smile; his smile reflects his love for what he and Kelli are doing with Outback Motortek. This personality com- ponent feeds the heart and soul of the orga- nization. Outback Motortek is founded on family values, mutual respect, humble grat- itude, and honor in a business world that often lacks these quali- ties. Their vision quickly transfers to the lucky customers that discover Outback Motortek; I experi- enced this first hand and through the feed- back of some Outback Motortek customers. They are very quick to correct any product issues and will do what- ever it takes to win over their customers. Outback Motortek


products are always hand built; there are no robotics in the family- owned factory, and production is done with very little out- sourcing. While the


enough, he drops it on pavement! However, it’s Kinga’s personal reflections and the images of her high-speed, head-on collision with Outback Motortek’s crash bars and skid plate protecting the engine of her F 800 GS that seals the deal. Kinga’s story is a hard-hitting testimonial to OM’s incredibly durable products. As a small company, Outback Motortek


competes with giants in the industry, but pound for pound the OM products exceed expectations in quality and craftsmanship. Customer service and personal attention underpin Outback Motortek’s business


father and son collaborate across two conti- nents and the Atlantic Ocean, the attention to quality production is not diluted, and in fact, the international component seems to be the glue that holds the company together. On one side is the visionary son of an engi- neer, and on the other continent are decades of quality craftsmanship and engineering; I’d call it a perfect chemistry. The best of all OM’s products is the pride of the designers and the craftsman. As an example, nearly all OM products are thicker or wider in critical areas such as impact zones and high-stress points. I can attest to this point; as an
