Wear indicators

Do motorcycle brake pads have wear indicators like cars do? Mine have the scrubbing sound coming from them so I know it is time for a new set but a friend of mine said I should park the motor because bike brake pads do not have wear indicators and go from good to grinding metal. I do not want to damage the rotors and it will take a few days to get the pads but I also need my bike (primary transportation). Thanks for the help.

The OEM pads have wear indicators. They are described in the manual, and there is a picture to there as well.
