Luckily you had the hand guards, it could have been a lot worse. Something to consider, I installed bright white running LED on my Barkbusters, also signal lights.I used the original signal lights to drive a relay for each side, normally closed contact is the running light and normally open drives the yellow LED , and toggles off the running light for the signal side . Cost $5 a relay including wiring harness and socket, I purchased a lot of 5 for $20 plus shipping.The relays were 40 amp, but no worries, so $10 for 2 relays and some wiring, the LED strips were like $20 total. So if you are in a car, you see a much wider illumination than just the headlight. But if you don't look or have a blind spot, well no amount of light will help. In your case, the guy couldn't have looked, it appears you were at his rear bumper when he opened the door.
