The corbin is awesome! I had a hard time putting any kind of mileage on the bike until I got one. The stock seat is terrible.
I don't think the seat is anymore or less slippery than the stock seat.
Regarding the vibes - Ditching the stock bars and going with renthals fixed it for me. I have never noticed a "stink", from the bike anyways.
