Jeremy Mickus - Owner
Mechanic and Chief Enthusiast
Jeremy was born and raised in Arizona. He attended college at NAU and UNLV. He spent 20 years working for the small grocery chain Trader Joe’s and ended up running stores in Michigan. Motorcycles had always been a passion for him and he would spend time riding and repairing his own bikes. In 2013 he decided to move back to Arizona and pursue his passion. He attended Motorcycle Mechanics Institute where he graduated at the top of his class with 2,250 total class hours. There he received his certifications in BMW, Harley and Suzuki. In 2014 he started work at MotoGhost where he worked closely under Omar Sayied for the next five and a half years. Omar taught Jeremy everything from the newer models to the ancestral wisdom of 1970’s Airheads. In December of 2018 Omar gave Jeremy his blessing and sold MotoGhost. Jeremy is now the current owner of MotoGhost who stays true to the philosophy and principles of which the shop was built on.
