For many it's not the area of usage that matters, but it's the fact that they out-grow the bike due to it's lower ccm/power.
The point is, the 500 can do all of those things too, and more!
And it's the day you come to the "more" part that you'll think back "why didn't I get the 500 instead?"
But if all you're planning on doing is just small trips here and there and sell it again after 2-3 years, then by all means, no need for the 500 then.
But if you're planning on staying on two wheels a while, then I don't see a reason to choose the 300 over the 500. Unless you might crave something new by then anyway.
