Electric trike, anybody use one?

We have been hunting the last two years with e-bikes it’s really opened some areas up for us. Most of the areas we ride them on are motorcycle trails and logging roads. I have a Bakcou storm full suspension bike that I think now has close to 800 miles on. It’s been a great bike I did get the biggest battery they make for it which is a 25ah. I just got my first flat at about 600 miles just put a new tube in it and was god to go. The other bike my now 14 year old son ride and it’s a rad rover 6 plus. It’s been a good bike but have had a few issues with it. I had to wait on parts that were on backorder. We both ride with a pack frame and gun or bow on backpack. I would not recommend having a gun rack on the bike. Some of the trails get skinny. We have packed out several animals with the bikes. It’s a hell of a lot easier than walking with a pack full o meat. Now battery life all depends on the amount of assist you use and how much your working. I try to stay around 3 assist unless I get to a steep hill then I just bump it up for a bit.

An electric trike could be a good choice for you. It's like a bike with three wheels, and it runs on electricity instead of pedals. It's easier to ride because you don't need to balance like on a regular bike. Some people use them to go uphill and handle rough terrain like hills with rocks. If you're considering one, it's helpful to ask around if anyone has experience with them or knows someone who does. Also, keeping an eye on shedding schedule updates can help you plan when to use it if electricity is a concern.
 
My suggestion, for offraod, get the 4 wheel version. A Trike will be nowhere near as stable. Anyone who rode the old 3 Wheel Honda Big Reds knows exactly why they are no longer made. I was young and very fit when they came out. At the time raced dirt bikes cross country, Trials and Motocross as well as street bikes. I tried a trike a couple of times and decided they were far too dangerous. I did buy one of the first quads that came out however.
