VIDEO: More than 200 bikers ride to escort the body of a baby boy
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (BIKER DAD)–More than 200 bikers rode to honor a murdered baby boy. 2-year-old Zavien Kinyon was from Iowa but living with his grandparents in Oklahoma.
The little boy died in June when his grandparents dropped him off at daycare. KRCG spoke to the grandmother who says, “On that Friday morning June 18th we dropped off a beautiful, healthy 2-year-old full of life.” She got a frantic call from the boy’s babysitter’s husband. He said Zavien fell off a bunk bed. He died at a hospital.

Zavien’s family isn’t sure they’re buying the story about the bunk beds. There’s an ongoing investigation. What they are sure of is that the boy would have loved to see all those motorcycles. His grandfather has a Harley. “It was always bike papa, bike papa,” his grandmother told the TV station.
In all more than 200 bikers from all over the state of Iowa showed up with less than 24 hours’ notice to bring the boy home to his final resting place. Most were complete strangers KRCG reports. ”We knew that we could take that little boy and we could take him to his final resting place being escorted by over 200 motorcycles, so maybe in a weird way he was kind of smiling about it,” Wendy Kells said, who rode from Cedar Rapids.
