Thousands of Bikers Pay Tribute in Funeral Procession to Boy Who Loved Motorcycles

The procession lasted for over 8 minutes.

— -- Over a thousand bikers drove in a funeral procession this weekend for a 5-year-old boy who loved motorcycles. Hunter Weiss’s life was commemorated by the entire community of Magna, Utah, and beyond with the surprising turnout.

The idea came from Hunter’s father, who asked some of his friends in his motorcycle club to ride in the funeral procession to honor Hunter’s love of motorcycles, Hunter’s aunt, Kara Foil, told ABC News today.

Word of the procession quickly spread on social media and on Saturday morning, thousands of bikers showed up.

“We expected maybe 100, 200 bikes,” Foil said. “Over 2,000 bikes came.”
