Are you saying the name of the restaurant is Hey? I tried looking that up and didn't get any results.

 :-\If you have never been to the restaurant at Cheaha, it is high on the mountain and looks out over a great view.
Last year we rode around at the top of the mountain and even took a short hike to a cool look out area. 
Come on up and join us for a Nice RTE.

Hey Juve (that has a familiar ring to it. where have I/you heard that before??  :great:)
Really enjoyed getting to meet you and Alan. We'll be putting together some more RTEs over the next several months and could use some suggestions for places down your way. The thought is that by staying out of north Georgia the weather is likely to be more cooperative and avoid some of the worst winter weather. (Yeah, right...tried one in Warm Springs in February two years ago and ended up driving the cage because of the icy roads in my area - but we try, anyway). If you have some suggestions (Senoia Coffee & Cafe Shop, for example?) please pass them along.
TCARS, y'all

Had a great day of riding thanks to the Cheaha Mountain RTE held today. Weather was a balmy 39 this morning at liftoff so the electrics were put to good use. Keith and I had a rather business-like ride into and out of the site with not a lot of time for chitchat given the later than planned start and our need to return fairly promptly. Greatly enjoyed the company and noted that there were more Georgians at this gig than those from the host state. Just an observation... :)

Thanks, Allen, for putting up with us and getting this organized.

PS. Keith's GPS did indeed fail to bring him back to my house for painting...  darn the luck!

Seeing how you DID ask...Aspen's Mountain Grill in Warm Springs IS one of my favorite places to RTE. Good burgers. Lots of parking. FDR park is right there with some twisties and scenic overlooks. :beerchug:

Looks like we have a winner!  I've enjoyed their food a time or two myself. Will have to note that your GPS is "locationally challenged" if it puts you in Warm Springs, though.  ;)

Aspen's Mountain Grill, 5700 Georgia 354, Pine Mountain, GA ‎

Looking at dates for 11/16 or 12/7. Preferably the latter as SWMBO has been taking special interest in how I've been using my free time on weekends these past two months... :truce: Translation: I've got some painting to do around the house.  ::)

Allen, I would like to thank the everyone that made the Cheaha RTE, you made me feel like one of the group. I enjoyed the event very much. The food and conversation was good. Looking at all the farkles that everyone has on their bikes was great too. I will be looking forward to another event that I can attend.

Oops!  Pine Mountain is correct.  I went there this past saturday.  Warm Springs is close by, but you won't find Aspen's Mountain Grill in Warm Springs.  sorry :)

No apologies necessary. Not knowing can sometimes make getting there all the more exciting. DAMHIK
