Hi Craig. Welcome to the forum.
I too have a G310R. This is an amazing bike. You start it up and feel a little disappointed as its so quiet and sounds like a well-oiled sewing machine, BUT (after you have run the engine in or the break-in period)
you open her up and are then pleasantly surprised at the engine sound, AND the turn of speed. I find the cornering, safe and remarkable considering there is no traction control, or rider modes etc, and I've ridden through downpours at normal speeds with no issues with traction. I think most of us on the Forum come from bigger bikes, or still have other larger bikes, myself included. Are there downsides? yes, but this is MY opinion only, I wish I had got the comfort seat (my bony old a***) and I wish we could have had the choice of a centre stand. (No the GS one won't fit, I've tried)The illumination from the headlight at night is not great, but that can be fixed with aftermarket bits, To sum up, This bike is so easy to ride, easy to move around, is reliable, and doesn't cost the earth to either buy or run. You have picked a winner!. Enjoy.
