The idea came from Hunter's father, who asked some of his friends in a motorcycle club to ride in the funeral procession to honor Hunter's love of motorcycles. Word of the procession quickly spread on social media and on Saturday morning, thousands of bikers showed up.

"We expected maybe 100, 200 bikes," Hunter's aunt, Kara, told ABC News. "Over 2,000 bikes came."

"We appreciate all the respects and condolences we've gotten," Kara said.

She added that the tribute was "pretty emotional. It was amazing. I don’t know how to describe it. Unreal."
