How many tall guys are riding a 600?

I'm 6'4" and I'm riding a CBR600RR (the one in my sig). My wife says I look too small for the bike. How many other tall guys are riding a 600? Now I feel self-consious about it, LOL. How much bigger is a liter bike, body-wise?

1k's are a little bigger body wise and the ergo's are a little more spacious on liter bikes.

Oh, dont get me wrong, I feel plenty comfortable for the most part, except when I try to tuck behind the windscreen.

I guess another good question would be, what is the bigger bike out of the big 4?

I have seen some big guys try to ride small bikes and it is funny.
Hmm, I'd like to say slender build. 6'4", 225, 36" waist.
