The Germans were thinking when they put the pins in the design, it allows the joint to be serviced/ greased, some other bikes that have ball joint type linkage have a crimped fit on the ball and cant be serviced and as you know well the grease manages to go away over time and the socket wears, i had a bike with the crimped type wear and fall out of the socket on a trip 700 miles from home and i used 4 zip ties to hold the thing together till i made it back, had to buy a new linkage rod ends.
