Get yourself a hand spray pump bottle and fill it with water. Then always spray the area with some water before doing the buffing. Keeping the area wet will also keep you from burning through the paint.
Also make sure you put some sort of covering on surrounding areas when you start buffing. The buffer will throw out drops of the buffing compound and if it is allowed to dry on surrounding surfaces, it may spot and not come off.

Dart is right on the money about covering other painted parts that have been cut 'N buffed. I use Presta products and have in the past used the other major brands. They all spot. Get a bundle of microfibre towels and wash them often, otherwise you may find your chasing your tail buffing out those spots.
