Congrats on the new ride. First off a goldwing is not a cruiser, it is a touring bike, common mistake. Yes you need to bleed the clutch as well as the brakes, commonly neglected item. Probably needs new coolant and final drive oil also and did you ask if and when the timing belts had been changed? You can remove the shifter and move it up, simple job. You could have had the seat foam cut down instead of lowering the suspension.
