I heard about this accident and I wondered why was the motorcyle rider going so fast. My husband and I ride and this just blows my mind. What kind of motorcycle was it. You can read more about my feelings on this at thebikersvoice.com .

The news (THV) last night doing the story, showed what appeared to be a red / white bike , one of those custom choppers with the large rear tires, but i couldn't visibly see any damage to the bike and it was parked standing up. I can't imagine why the news would show another bike just to tie it in with a motorcycle story though , so i'm assuming that this WAS the actual bike,...which confuses me more , since those custom choppers are quite expensive (to me anyway..) and the commitment to one of them would imply a little more responsibility and consideration to not just whip by some stopped cars and blow through a crosswalk at 70 mph (!!). Not to sound snobbish , but i'd reserve that kind of stupidness for some moron on his crotch rocket bike - there's plenty of them around.

Someone please tell me this biker is not still on
the road ? Does anyone know what has happened with this case and if he is going to trial. Why
is he not in jail right now. You know if I had hit someone and killed them I would be arrested. I am sure he had to have been drunk or on dope or
he would not have been going that fast, without
breaking or swirving.

You're kidding, right? You and the person above who asked "What kind of motorcycle was it?"
Who asks that kind of question? If the man had been killed by a horse, how appropriate and compassionate would it be to ask, "what kind of horse was it? I wouldn't think someone who could afford an expensive Arabian would ride like that... probably a yay hoo on a quarter horse."

What kind of personal acquaintance could you so pretentiously claim to be to make this kind of statement? "Well known as a party drinking, pot smoker, and a cocaine user".
Where are your credentials, cretin? Who do you claim to be to say such things? From your spell check rejected post, your opinionated and malicious comment, I hope that you can see exactly what kind of degenerate you are.
A personal acquaintance?
You must be well aware that Larry has a family, including children, that are concerned about him. It is utterly shameful that you would place this like an authoritative account on the internet for other people to read.
You don't even know him.

When I first heard about you, I couldn't fathom the pain you must have felt at this horrendous circumstance. I wanted to personally apologize to you and your mother and father for the actions that took him away from you. I am sincerely, unrelentingly sorry for your loss, and wish that there was anything that could be done to make things even a trifle better for you. I wish that I could talk to you, sometimes, but I do not doubt what hatred you must feel.

What I want to say is that.... Nothing will ever be able to replace your father, and that is what I learned as well on that apocalyptic day that yours and mine "met".

I know that it doesn't mean anything to you in light of your situation; I don't ask for any sympathy or empathy. But I am aware that no one realizes that that day, in (and because of) that excruciating collision, we lost our dad, too.

I am so sorry.

I find it so amazing that everyone feels they have the right to judge someone without knowing the facts or apparently the man on the bike. I worked with "the man on the bike" for many years and never knew him to be a drug user of any type (we were all tested on all regular basis). I too feel terrible for the loss of the young girl, who until she can find forgiveness in her heart, won't be able to move on. This was an accident people!! It was raining, the roads were slick, and you couldn't possible drive a high rate of speed during a football game in this particular part of town. Let God be the judge! and yes, he will have his day in court. I pray for everyone to find peace and forgiveness in their hearts and for "the man on the bike" who has to live each day knowing he took another man's life. You can't always believe the news that like's to sensationalize everything to make it news worthy.

Judgemental?! I have spoken with Larry, the "man on the bike", since the accident and was absolutely appalled that he has NO remorse for killing that man or for paralyzing his wife. Larry still has the nerve to say that he was completely sober when the toxicology report showed his blood alcohol to be almost twice the legal limit. Forgiveness?! How about an apology from Larry to all of those affected by his thoughtless and selfish actions - especially the Marvin family and the Dalhaus children - God bless them all.

Larry Dalhaus' day in Court is December 12th in Lonoke County. Let the law decide what Larry gets for killing an innocent man & crippling his wife for life. Larry has no idea of how his mistake has changed the lives of so many people. Jeff Marvin was a very good man who loved his family, his friends & his life. He would not want any of us to sit & judge Larry withoug knowing ALL OF THE FACTS available. HERESAY is not fact or evidence. Whether Larry drinks alcohol in excess or DOES or DOES NOT do drugs on a regular basis is not a factor in THIS case. The only factor in this case is whether or not Larry was drinking and/or using drugs on the night of 9/12/08. When the facts and evidence are spread out on the table, let the court system decide Larry's guilt or innocence. This is not for US to decide. Larry created this mess by his recklessness that night so now he & his children must live with his decision. There are no do-overs in life. Let's let the law decide for Larry how he will spend the rest of his life. At least he is still alive & his kids are still able to hug & talk to him, unlike Jeff's kids, family & friends. Larry is not the victim.
Please pray for both the Marvin and the Dalhaus families, children & friends. We have all lost a lot in this incident.

My husband worked with Rebekah for many years. I have spoken with her many times and we both think the world of her. I was shocked to hear the news today of the accident. Please pass along to her that she and her family are in our thoughts and prayers.
I totally agree

I totally agree. This man made a STUPID mistake- that was his fault and his fault only. I don't care if he was drinking or high- he caused this man's death and the injuries of his wife. How do you feel sorry for someone like that?

I think people are putting way too much type about motorcycles being the cause when it was not the bike that killed these people, and who are you morons that drive the cages(cars) to talk when you morons are driving and talking on phone,shaving,reading,eating,e tc,etc,etc.... You people are worse than drunks! At least when I blow past you on freeway at 200 mph on my "crotch rocket" you are in no risk of me missing the seeing of your lame car while I am talking on my phone lol ! Put the blame on the person not the machine!

Oops I made a typo in the above: My bike will not do 200 mph ....lately since I installed new race exhaust... Only does about 197 mph now for some reason lol so I will have to check into that :) Oops I figured it out : It only does 197 if I am doing wheelies but otherwise on two wheels it does all 200 lol!!!!!!
