One possibility: Swap the existing HotRod encoder out for something like an iPAC or Keywiz. That would give you native USB functionality and should be pretty easy to do. It's been a while since I last opened my HotRod up, but I think you could just swap the wires, you wouldn't even need to do any soldering.
