This is the first image of Leon Haslam in the BMW Motorrad garage as post-season testing gets underway at Magny-Cours.

A week on from confirming he will switch to the German manufacturer from the Suzuki Alstare team he took to second in the 2010 WSBK standings, Haslam will get his first taste of the BMW S1000RR later today.

Joining Troy Corser in the team, Haslam is one of several riders sampling new machinery over the next two days following a glut of announcements in recent weeks.
