We went to Madison also. (It was our first Wing Ding actually,) after buying our new F6B. Kind of like the Valkyries I owned previously I didn't really own a "real" Gold Wing and we felt somewhat out of place both due to our relatively younger ages, lack of matching apparel and stuffed animals on our bike. Truly the only reason I went was for the vendor area and that part of the event met all expectations.

Now that I have a full Wing things may be a bit different, but still the age gap, lack of matching clothing and stuffed animals remain.
If another one was held closer to me or at a destination I was interested in I would go for a day for the vendor area but that's about it.
