I've been able to balance my bike for a max between 7 to 10 seconds about twice, which is quite an improvement, but my average balancing time is between 2 to 5 seconds.
I've once been distracted by airplanes lately, but it's kind of hard to ignore it, because due to my hearing impairment, it can be hard to hear cars. Besides, there is lot of airplane activity going on up in the sky. I've been distracted by a running dog just once but the dog didn't come to me. So when I fell down, both of my wrists, my hands, and fingers just got sore. Stupid dogs... (No offense to those who love dogs.)
The road in Sloop Place (32825) is very hard for me to practice in due to parking lots with a shallow hill in each side of the road. When this happens and when I slow down, my bike just kind of went in reverse mode even though I tried to stop it and get off.
I did run toward a couple of cars (I stopped my bike in time) but I once bump toward the red car's front right door with my front wheel. I have got to be careful because I might be sued for a damage to the front left of the door.
Other than that, I've got to keep practicing some more, but sometimes dog will not leave me alone. My bike is working pretty good, though.
