You did very good "not" walking on the roof. Reaching over and coating from the siding was a good idea.
Your rubber roof is "not" a direct walk on roof. To service the roof, put a tarp, old carpet or something down to protect the rubber from abrasion. Then using manageable sized sheets of 3/8" or thicker plywood at least 18 to 20" wide, place them over the rafters on 16" centers on the roof. The rafter you can feel under the rubber will support you with the plywood spanning at least 2 rafters. You can damage the roof between rafters without the using the plywood as there is no structural strength in that area for walking directly between the rafters.
I use 24" x 48" pieces of plywood. Large enough to cover with added room, yet I can manage getting them up and down the ladder safely.
There are some special order Sunlines with partial and full walk on roofs. But they had to be specially ordered to come that way at the time of order. Most Sunlines are not a direct walk on roof.
