For what it's worth, this seems to be "luck of the draw" with Border Guards in or out of the different countries.
21 years ago, a buddy and I were going down to Texas on our bikes (me: CX500Turbo, him: CB900F) and we pull up to the Washington State border, going south from Canada.
The previous car leaves the booth, and buddy and I start our bikes and begin to both go forward. The dude in the shack *SPAZZES* and literally shrieks out the window: One at a time! One at a F*cking time!
He looks like he's going to shoot us, and sits there livid, with a finger pointing at my buddy all the while he's trying to waddle his bike backwards all loaded up with 3 weeks worth of luggage and tents 'n crap
Who knows, eh?
The immigration/customs agent has a camera capturing the image of your rear licence plate as you pull up to the booth and within seconds they can see the registration details of the car and a background check of the registered owner. Two bikes pulled up at the same time will defeat the autoscan of the licence plate. I suspect that's part of the issue.
