I'm not trying to stir shit, but you'll want to demo-ride the strom to find out how it works for you. Be sure to also demo the 650; a lot of people prefer it to the big brother.
Coming from 200+hp bikes, I had dismissed the 650 (just based on horsepower numbers), but after trying out the 1000 and the 650, a wee is what I ended up buying (and I got ABS brakes as a bonus). There's nothing the 1000 can do that the 650 can't.
The goldwing is torquey, but I think it's a bit of a cow. This opinion is based on riding my dad's valkyrie in the Swiss alps; a wee will outperform it in any test you care to subject both bikes to.
Of course, the vee will also outperform the honda, but the wee is a little bit lower, cheaper, smoother and better on gas. For many people, the wee is also a license-saver. If you're set on a vee after trying both bikes, that's fine. In either case, you're buying a great machine.
