Dang, buyer's remorse

Was all locked and cocked to get a super low mileage Quota this weekend then backed out at the last minute. Got a Stelvio instead (for twice the price). Hope I made the right decision... :huh

Discounts on Wolfman 2009 stuff..

Really, really like their 2010 stuff but they also have some blow out prices on their leftover 2009 stuff. Just bought a set of expedition bags for $115 ($168 is the 'normal' price).
