The meaning of "Highway" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa I was creeping down the highway on the back of Wes’s motorcycle... when an eighteen-wheeler exploded and almost killed my best friend, Quint.
A: This seems like fancy writing, not regular speech, so it's intentionally a little unclear.

I think the writer means that the motorcycle is owned by Wes, but the writer is the person riding the bike now. This is not how you would say this in a normal conversation.

It might mean that Wes is driving and the writer is also on the bike, sitting behind Wes, but that's not my first guess.
Q: O que significa "highway miles" "city miles"?
A: This is terminology that started back when car makers began to show what sort of mileage each vehicle can get. Meaning how good the vehicle would be on gas. How much gas the vehicle would use. With gas prices rising and people wanting more fuel-efficient vehicles, it is an important thing to know.
So basically there are two ways of determining the mileage. How a vehicle uses gas when driving in and around the city in city traffic with lots of stops and starts and changes in speed. Or how a vehicle does on the highway or expressway where you can drive a lot faster and maintain a more constant speed.
As a rule vehicles get better gas mileage on the highway. And not as good mileage when driving in the city. So usually the car manufacturer will post two different mileage numbers. One for city and one for highway.
