He was parked there and suddenly started to move. I could not avoid that because I was right there and if I roll the throttle, he could bump me into the car parked on the right like this one on 2nd picture.

There is two crossroads, one after another. I've crossed first one, ok, cars parked on the left and right. Looked to the right, noone, turned head to the left...wtf its moving?!...hit.

Technically there is two crossroads from where I came from. One is controlled by traffic light and another is by right hand rule. Thats why I was moving pretty slow and looked to the right. And did not even expect the car from the left, and moving BACKWARDS.

Thanks. I'm pretty lucky there. I've been in serveral accidents on my previous bike, never was my fault and never even single scratch on me.
But the repair time and price was REALLY different from now.
Harley: 1 day off, 30 bucks and you're back in saddle.
Honda: 30 days f waiting parts, a day to replace them and a lot of $$$.
Anyway, it was great bike too.

your bag probably saved your rear turn signal.
