Motorcyclist killed by evil mandatory helmet law

You may have seen this story:
A New York man died Sunday while participating in a ride with 550 other motorcyclists to protest the state's mandatory helmet law.

Police said Philip A. Contos, 55, hit his brakes and his motorcycle fishtailed. Contos was sent over the handlebars of his 1983 Harley Davidson and hit his head on the pavement.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital. [...]
If the point of riding without a helmet was to protest the helmet-law, then without the law he might have been wearing a helmet? Libertarianism doesn't have anything to do with not using safety equipment, right?
