I assume you meant to use oplot, since as Pavel mentions the PLOTs
will just overwrite each other.  I think this is a job for WHERE():

plot, f, /nodata
oplot, f
wh = where(f GT 10.1, ct)
if ct GT 0 then oplot, wh, f(wh), thick=2

This sequence plots the entire line with thin, and then overwrites
only a portion with thick.  This practice guarantees no gaps.
