    Whatchamacallits - Japanese Subway Train Rings

    So, i know WHAT these really are, and I know 'how' they are used in regards to our JNCs.
    But can someone tell me more...
    What are they called in JNC jargon?
    What's the story behind them?

    Apparently bosozoku gang members would steal them from trains. Obviously, this was illegal and hanging one off your rear bumper was a way of flaunting your law breaking activities to anyone who saw it, including Tha Man.

    I don't know what you call them in Japanese though.
