I84 from exit 32 to exit 34 is a huge motorcycle drag strip. You can hear them racing back and forth on many nights of the week. Also it is not uncommon to have motorcycles passing automobiles at high speed during the day. The state police used to stay in the area to monitor traffic, but I have not seen a monitoring trooper (in the daytime) for years. The area of the crash is one of CT DOT's failures. This area of the highway has had major reconstruction three or four times making only limited safety improvements. But with all the concrete walls at least the tractor trailers trucks don't fall off the highway anymore!

CSP stopped monitoring the area because it's a self correcting issue at that location. I'm sure the family of the cement wall won't be suing anyone.

We were on our way to the Brad Paisley concert and these 3 bikes passed us at well over 100+, closer to 130. They split 2 cars on the dashed line & were gone. 40 seconds later, at the right hand turn, the blue bike in in the center lane and the kid on the yellow bike is running on the shoulder to see what happened. Sad. I rode a bike for years but you could see it coming. Helmets & leather can't help this much stupidity.

Sorry, but this third-world imbecile deserved his fate, and its a miracle he didnt involve others.
It was just a matter of time before he killed some innocent family with his blatant lifelong disregard for the general public.
His criminal and MV history is well-documented.
im highly upset that you would talk about my best friend like this no one deserves to die and your the only one with disregard to the public you dont even know if he was speeding...you should be ashamed of yourself and im sure your son is some pedofile

They scared the hell out my friend driving the car. They were flying. All 3 bike were well over 100 mph. The guy on the yellow bike was the only bike to stop and check on Marvin. He may have been a great guy and a friend to many but this was a big mistake on his part.

Is this true - did Marvin's bike lock up? Is that what caused the accident. Did anyone actually see what happened? What happened?

Ok. So? He doesnt have any assualts or murders or the like. I'm sure if he would have whooped someone's ass u would have be the first. At least on my list. Don't judge him because of his past offenses. I'm sure you've done alot of sh*t. whether u've been caugt for it or not. I'm sure.

I am so appalled at the nasty comments. I too was a very close friend of Marvin, aka Orion. I know how much he enjoyed riding and I am positive he would not have intentionally jeopardized his life or anyone else's. This was an unexpected and tragic event, have respect for him and his family, to say the very least.

What caused Marvin's death? What did the police report say? Who was with him riding the bike to New Britain? Was this locking up of the bike due to wreckless driving?

Your reply and disrespect to the decease shows 1000x more stupidity and i hope when u die people are as judgmental, insensitive, and ignorant as you!!!! Theres nothing i hate more than ignorant a$$ people like yourself. What he chose to do with his life was his business who are you to judge him??? I wish people like you would hold hands and jump off a bridge, the world would be a much better place!!!!

How about you get a life instead of investigating the deceaced? Do something productive with yourelf instead of judging others....as i see he never had any murder, assault, or petafile charges. But you talk as if he's an animal. How about you join the rest of the people on here being disrespectful, ignorant, and judgemental and go jump off a bridge and take whoever gave you your dumb a$$ mentality with you!!!!!
