There are a few questions to ask before I can give you a good answer.

1) What year(s) are you looking at.
2) How much riding experience do you have?

Both bikes are pretty much equal daily riders. Your ass and back will hurt after an hour, and you get all the wind on the freeway.

OK, for those model years I think the gixxer would be a better choice for you. The new generation R6's power is way, way high up in the RPM range. From my experience the seating position is a little more comfortable on the gixxer than the r6. Also if I'm not mistaken the suzuki comes with adjustable footpegs out of the box.

^ haha, always with the jokes :rolleyes:

Sit on both for a good while before making your choice. I personally say the gsxr all the way. The r6 is just too damned focused a track weapon to be great for everyday use. Unless of course your commute to work everyday involves a few miles of twisties. :) (if only life were so grand.)
