recently acquired a thunderbolt (believe an A-10, but not sure) looking for a fairing any good suggestions for parts or riding. Have ridden 100 miles in two weeks plus more miles on my regular bike to exercise the 100+ pound dog. I love the recumbent it is a very nice bike.

most bents take stand parts.
a couple of places to get fairings
bentrideronline.com is the motherlode of recumbent information and discussion. There are links to many manufacturers and retailers, including Lightning. They state they have Thunderbolt parts.
Welcome to "bent-ness", continue to enjoy the comfort of your lounge chair on wheels.

Hey, that's great. I always wanted to fly one of those.
Now you are getting your sports mixed up... :)

I've never been on a Lightning Thunderbolt, but always liked the looks of them. Lightning claims they are great on hills, which is likely a good thing in dealing with a 100 pound dog.
I have a LIghtning P-38 and it is good on hills...however this motor is not. It does climb well, so I would imagine the other Lightning bikes would do well also.
