competitors use bolt-on sliders that can break off and need frequent replacing during extreme use. The skid plate bolts onto the existing motor mounts, easing the installation process, and is quickly removed for oil changes. Design is essential to functionality, and as Lorry said, “We designed the ‘Murghab’ skid plate to provide sufficient protection from the harsh effects of off-roading, yet keep the engine well-ventilated.” Conse- quently, the skid plates function as well as they look and provide the rider with peace of mind for extreme off-road riding. There are several clips of skid plates bashing on rocks, sliding over logs, and being intention- ally tortured by big hits; just check the OM website or YouTube. Outback Motorteck has recently


partnered with BMW Motorrad Hun- gary for continual fitment and adjust- ment sessions on borrowed bikes. The current list of bikes fitted for Outback Motortek farkles includes


BMW F 650/700/800 GS, Suzuki V-Strom DL 650, Kawasaki KLR 650, and 2016 Honda African Twin (coming soon). It is likely that throughout


your travels to the many rallies over the 2016 riding season that you will encounter Lorry and Kelli at their Outback Motortek vendor’s booth; look for the dis- tinctive orange and black colors. When you do, stop in and say hello, check out their products, and share your stories.


PROS: Outstanding craftsman- ship, grey color choice, actually crash tested, strength ridges on bottom of skid plates, and com- petitive pricing.


CONS: Limited product line, some growing pains, low expo- sure in the USA


For the F800/700/650GS (2009-2015)


MSRP in USD: Crash Bars (upper & lower), $389; Low-


ers only, $225; Uppers only, $229. Skid Plate $249; Tail Rack, $129. Many package deals are available online.
