Sunday drive

Left this morning to go south 100 miles with the temps in the mid 30s. It was chilly and am thankful for cheap handwarmers. The drive itself is straight forward and from others' threads, probably boring to most of you. For me it was great to get away, enjoy a short ride in November, and visit and worship with my cousin and her family. Driving home after lunch, temps had thankfully risen to the 70s. Two things were of some interest to me. One, on the trip down, I was met with only one other motorcyclist on some type of adventure bike heading north. Going home, motorcycles were everywhere with the heat wave. Interestingly, I saw the same guy heading south that I had seen in the morning. Two, mileage was 30 mpg down and 40 mpg headed home. Was it wind, speed (drove the speed limit home), temperature change, voodoo - I don't know, but it seems odd to have such disparity? Thankful to have the Versys, though - medicine for the soul.
