The main reason I moved to the XR was more power and storage but as far as comfort goes I actually find my Suzuki to be better but every person is different when it comes to what is comfortable. One thing at your height (I am the same size) is that most bikes just don't have the legroom to really get comfortable. The Cross bikes are the first I have ever sat on that fit my 34" inseam in stock configuration. Had to get forwards for my Suzuki which made it a whole different bike when it came to comfort.
