• False ID to law enforcement is a crime.
• False statement to law enforcement is a crime.
• Saying NOTHING (other than your identifying information) is perfectly legal.
You do NOT have to tell the officer why you THINK he stopped you, where you were coming from, or where, or how fast, you were going.
"Cause I was speeding?" You may have just confessed to a crime. If you say the wrong thing, the officer won't need to show he was tracking you, radar was working, or much else in court.
