Again the "Quarter of six" is more likely a german phrase and would probably mean 5.45. As Paul has said, we're more likely to say quarter past six (6.15) or quarter to six (5.45).

Yes, riding pillion can be applied to horse riding, that's where it comes from. If you don't ride pillion on motorbikes in the states, what do you do?! *G*
