It is possible that the wear indicators for the brake pads are touching the rotor, indicating worn brake pads. They probably make the noise all the time, but at higher speeds, the pitch changes, and there is more road noise, so the problem is less noticeable. Depending on how much you drive, and traffic situations, etc, the noise should get a lot more more noticeable within the next couple of days. You will then have to replace the brake pads, ASAP. If not, the pads will tear up the rotors, and then they too will have to be replaced.

Why is your wheel squeaking when you drive but stops when there is no weight on it like if you are in a turn and the weight is shifted to the opposite side of the car?

I had this happen. It was the wheel bearing. It starts off as a faint whine, but over time as the bearing gets worse it becomes a squeal at highway speeds and a squeak at low speeds. If squeaking at low speeds the bearing is on its last legs and total failure is imminent probably causing more expensive damage and repair.

What are the shifting speeds for motorcycles?

I'm assuming by "shifting speeds" you mean when the manufacturer recommend you select the next gear. This will vary from bike to bike depending on the engine, transmission, and final drive ratios. You would find the information for your specific motorcycle in the user manual that came with it.

What would cause car to make a high squeaking noise whenever you have the wheel turned slightly but only at speeds slower then 40mph?

It is most likely due to a loose power steering belt. If the steering wheel is hard to turn at speeds slower than 40mph or it gets harder the more you turn it and the squeaking noise happens when you turn the wheel, then you need to check the tension on the power steering belt.

Why would your car make a squeaking noise when putting it in gear from park Squeaking sound also happens when going over small bumps at slow speeds and sometimes when brake is released.?

Dirty brake pads could cause a car to make a squeaking noise when putting the car in gear or when releasing the brakes. Cleaning, sanding, or replacing the brake pads should make the sound stop.

My Toyota Previa as a wineing noise when you accelerate and is getting worse?

Previas have a history of a whining noise coming from the catalytic converter. There is a bracket inside the converter that when loose or has came apart creates the whining noise during acceleration. It especially is very pronouced during high speeds in the freeway. You might be in for an expensive cat converter replacement.
