Welcome to the forum. I'm across town from you, in Katy. I can see why you would want to motorize a road bike to help you fight the coastal winds, but most members find the light weight road bikes are far less comfortable. They tend to transmit a lot of engine vibration to your hands and bum. There is an active thread on the forum from a fellow with a motorized Fuji road bike, so search for that post and see how it is going for him.
We did have four or five members on Galveston that rode together occasionally. Don't know if they are still riding.
