Which to get if either choice is appropriate

I need some help here. After not riding for the past 4 / 5 years I have decided that I want to ride again. I Went to the bike store today to look at a Suzuki gsxr 600. While I was there I noticed the Suzuki GSXR 1000. Now I know that there is 400cc's different but the 1000 looks much better (yellow and black) It also sets much better and feels very comfortable compaired to the 600. I am looking for opinions, 2 cents etc on your thoughts of the difference from 600 to 1000. I guess my question is this. Sinse I have not ridden in about 5 years is the 1000 a bit much ? I would very much appreciate as many opinions as possible. Thank you ahead of time

LMAO... that has to be the best analogy I have ever heard. shit when I went from my old carbed 600 to an FI 750 I could have used that analogy. The busa I just picked up is like that and its stock

Smile aware of the difference

I must say I did love that comment. However I am aware of the difference in power between the 600 and 1000. I have ridden both however my question is asking for the opinion on the question of after not riding in approximately 5 years which should I stick with as in the comfort of the 2005 gsxr1000 or just stick with the 600 because of the size even though I find it a little less comfortible ? Yes I do admit that I am a little rusty after not getting to ride in such a time and I do appreciate your opinions after all , the majority of you have been continously riding longer and more recent than myself.

Thanks
