Thanks for the update Mario! Great looking Breakfast at the Diner!
You guys are certainly not the first to come to grief crossing those slick crossings. They are famous ... and I've personally seen 3 different guys go down there. One on a brand new R12GS ... which slewed sideways, went off the bridge and into the Creek. Whoops! The trick is too go light on the bars, neutral throttle, no brake, relax, don't look down.

You should post up if you plan a ride.
