I can't decide if I hate or love the CCA. They are, at heart, an exclusionary social "club" of the worst sort; a country club which only allows people they think are "appropriate", and their idea of what makes a cruiser is IMLTHO pretty skewed. Still, like the swank country club, I'd rather like to be recognized as meeting their standards even if they are twisted and sad, but sorta social.
