Default Hi from new guy

I'm new here looking around for ideas for an MB. Iíve been into cycling since the early eighties and also ride motorcycles. My youngest son is a serious and successful road bike racer who trains every day. At this point none of his training partners can really push him and I haven't been able to stay with him since he was about 13. He's 17 now and wants to "cat up" to a level where he'll be competing with pros next season. This brings me to the MB, he could benefit from a type of training called "motor pacing." This is meant to allow the trained rider to draft a motor vehicle at speeds equal to, or greater than those that the rider will deal with in a peleton for extended periods of time. With no peletons (groups of riders) here in south GA to train with, this is the next best thing. Plus it lets me build another bike! Aught to be fun to ride to, my Buell is no fun to ride at 30mph. Right now it looks like I'll go with an in frame motor but don't want a little chicom 2 stroke so I've been checking out some of the larger 4 stroke alternatives. We'll see where it leads.
