Wish they had more options on seats and cowls

I'm not ALL about looks, more into performance but just some little things I wish we're available for our bikes. How come anyone doesent make a nice clean and sleek seat cowl ? It isn't that hard to manufacture, my grandfather has worked on vehicles all his life and he said he would easily be able to make a price of plastic to match the bike for a seat cowl. One that will keep the tail looking sleek like it should. And seats ? Why not have anything thinner ? Considering I'm a small dude, I don't need all this cushion. And doubt a lot of you do either. I love the sleekness of our bikes(why I mainly purchased one) so why not ?
Talk **** if you will, but I have a valid point here.

Ya I know they do..
But that's not what I said, I said thinner, sleeker. I did my research before posting this guy. And I'd also like to know why the fu** do seat cowls cost so damn much ? Piece of plastic and paint, 150 bucks ? Cha

You can always have someone modify your seat for you...
