Leather Track Suite, Slippery?

I just bought a leather riding suite,http://www.ebay.com/itm/261090569855...84.m1497.l2649 Know it is not an expensive suite but, figured it would be good for me as a novice for this year. It fits well and seems to be good quality. I tried it out on a ride to break it in and I felt lose on the bike, Even with StompGrip on the tank. I felt slick on the seat and tank. I usually feel lock in. Maybe there is a preservative on the leather? Anyone have any advice? The boots and gloves I purchased felt great. Just the suite makes me feel disconnected.

Are you sure the suit fits you well and it's not too lose?

Fits tight, just feels like there is a preservative or something on the leather making it slick against the bike

Took me half a track day to break in my suit to the point where it wasn't slipping all over. It's an AGV, too.
