But coming from a wing you're gonna want the GS. Smooth and dependable. There is a great BMW network, so even if you don't have a dealer nearby parts are easy to find , info and usually a helping hand are all pretty close.
I'll guess that that any of the liter+ size GS's will be too tall for comfort.

The Suzuki DL1000 may be 'the' bike you and your wife would be comfortable on.
It has oodles of power (more than the GS's), and can accept a lower seat height.

You can find them with low miles at god prices. That's one of those bikes they should have not stopped makng.
It's a 2-up machine, easy.

I would like to have one myself...
