I only got the 300 because my wife was with me when I went to the dealer and was too terrified for me to get a "bigger" bike since I was restarting riding after a fall a year prior.
Didn't want to argue after I got the green light to get another bike, and for under $5k new I took the gamble on the smaller bike.
At 5"10 190lbs it has enough power for me to get around the suburbs, downtown chicago, and highway (cruises at 70 mph comfortably).
Does everything I need it to, but yeah, wish I had gone with the 500.
I'll most likely keep the 300 for life since it's a good around town bike, but eventually buy a second bike for touring.
