I'm no expert by any means, but I think your biggest challenge with "adventure" bikes is going to be the height as you already discovered. I don't think any of them will be much like the Goldwing, but in terms of comfort for your wife the GS is probably going to be hard to beat. I believe they can be lowered some, and a custom (lower) seat could help. Good luck with your search . . . I'm sure others will be along soon with more/better info.
