I only live about 200 miles from Knoxville, and plan to give it a try. If nothing else, I can just ride back home if its not for me. I have never been much into the social scene with any bike, but enjoyed fellowship with the GWRRA folks out in California, in the late 1990s. Not sure what to expect in Knoxville but, retired recently, I have the extra time. LOL

I went to Wing Ding the summer after I bought my Goldwing brand new, so it would have been summer 2011. It was before they moved them to a September time table and it was friggin Hot in Knoxville. That said, I enjoyed it thoroughly and think that everyone with a GL1800 should attend at least one Wing Ding. Those with 1500 and earlier may not derive the benefits available as the GL1800 is what most of the vendors at Wing Dings are consumed with. I discovered a lot of things that could be done to a GL1800, and did quite a few of them, which both personalized and improved on the bike as originally purchased. I have not felt the need for another Wing Ding, but do not regret in any way having attended the one I did. I heartily recommend at least one.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
