I can't say I blame you for your opinion or hesitation as it were, however aside from the side stand, none of the problems are major. The biggest problem is the fear people get when they hear others complain. I for one have almost 11,000 miles on my 2018 G310GS ( purchased Feb 27th ). I have had none of the problems most of the complaints center around. I have had my Cush drive rubbers replaced by the dealer under warranty which appeared different than the original ones ( so maybe a bad batch of rubber ) and my electrical ( stator, voltage regulator, and battery ) failed without warning at around 10,000 miles. That was also taken care of by the dealer who went above and beyond to fix the problem. I have had great fun riding across the USA and back, as well as riding dirt trails and roads without any worry or fear. I ride freeways at 70 to 80MPH almost every day. The bike handles great, the brakes are good enough once bedded in and this little bike has been 10x more reliable than my Harley Davidson and 100x more fun to ride.
So I guess it is just a matter of, does your fear of something that has not happened ( and may never happen ) to you, outweigh the fun and excitement you get from riding your motorcycle.
