02-05 gsx600 vs 02-05 R6

I know these bikes are virtually the same in performance, but anybody have opinions on comfort, reliability, handling etc.? I've heard the R6 can be a little small for some and considering I'm 6,4 190lbs I need my room. Please don't suggest a cruiser either. Thanks!

Im sure that gixxers are the way to go, many say they are the most reliable... but I would get the r6 the tail is a bit blocky.... here's a side by side....

SBW readers, I have a Question: Are the forks on an R6 he's debating about vs the Gixxer not have inverted forks?!?
