What's with the shackle on the front bumper? I see a few of these, or anodized rings, sticking out of the bumpers of import cars from time to time.

Ricer-ific, in most cases.

It is conceivable that it was trailered to the dragon and that is the tie down.

There are several like that, and it's very much a ricer thing, but yes, that is conceivable.

They have tie-down points under the car, that point is technically for towing only.

Many cars come with an eye bolt in the toolkit and a small pop-out cover in the bumper covers where you thread it in for towing / rescuing from a ditch, or whatever.
Those eye bolts are almost always black or plated, not colorful, so draw your own conclusions.

Some Euro countries require a tow point on every vehicle sold.

Yep, but nobody rides around with the eye bolt from the tool kit screwed into the tow point on the bumper unless they want to look "serious"

Unless you're trying to hang it off the end of a fishing line as lure for bigger cars...

Just because he can, doesn't mean we want to.

That young TN state trooper guy on the HD is on a mission, rumor on the hill Sunday was, that Saturday he wrote 50+ tickets, i said no way, that would be close to 6+ or - per hour on an average shift, with the time figured in needed for catching up to the offender, so i watched and timed him for 3 stops, sure enough, he is making those kind of numbers with a few moments to spare.
Anybody care to guess what factor is working in his favor to have those kind of numbers, aside from the fact that people are speeding.

I'll play. Is it "lane violation" or "crossing the double yellow"?

Nope.
It is the fact that (based on what i saw) he is getting the groups, he had 2 in the first stop, 2 in the second, 3 in the 3rd.
7 tickets and not one stop was on a solo rider, seemed he liked to get his in groups.
