Default Wind resistance

Is it odd that my rides are extremely sensitive to the wind? I rode over to drop a DVD in the RedBox today, and zipped right over with a tailwind. With the headwind on the way back, I could barely get out of my own way. (I'm talking top speed, not acceleration.)

For the record, I'm running a stock RAW 50cc, 44 tooth, and I'm about 230 lbs, on a cruiser with really stupid bars that have me sitting up almost completely vertical. And it's about 20 F degrees.
